Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Hundreds of volunteers with the American RedCross sorted through hundreds of cards for U.S.military members, veterans, and their families.

The cards have poured in from all over the country as part of the holiday mail for heros program.

The volunteers sorted through the cards to determine which military group throughout the Midlands would receive them. Some will head to the VA Hospital orFort Jackson,and others will head to active duty members serving overseas.

The goal of Holiday Mail for Heroes is to share "a touch of home" with our service men and women while thanking them for their sacrifice.

The program was started 6 years ago.
