Volunteers came together on Friday in Lexington to prepare holiday cards for area Veterans as well as active duty military personnel. 

It’s the 'Holiday Mail For Heroes Campaign,' organized by the American Red Cross. 

Volunteers have collected cards for 6,000 Veterans and active duty military at VA hospitals in the region.

Organizers said it’s a way to give back to people who have given so much for their country.

The group plans to hold a sorting party closer to Christmas and will then distribute the well wishes.
