(WBIR) Blount County Veterans Affairs wants your help in bringing some holiday cheer this year to local Veterans.

The organization is asking as many people as possible to make holiday cards to send to veterans.

The Director of Veteran Affairs, Nathan Winebaum, said this is a great chance for people of all ages to give back and do something nice for Veterans who have done so much for us.

"Have your grandparents write a card, have your kids write a card, have the boy scouts, the girl scouts, anyone can write a card for a veteran and it will make a difference and they will appreciate it," Winebaum said.

You can drop off or mail the cards to:
Blount County Veterans Affairs
305 Court Street, Room 429
Maryville, TN 37804

All cards must be received by December 16.

Guidelines for the holiday cards:
All cards should be signed with only your first name
Only use generic salutations such as "Dear Veteran"
Do not include letters or pictures
Don't include your home address
Please refrain from making cards with glitter as it can aggravate health issues
