IBERIABANK, a 126-year-old subsidiary of IBERIABANK Corporation, has partnered with the American Red Cross to bring cheer and words of appreciation to our troops this holiday season through the Holiday Mail for Heroes Program. While military deployments and hospital stays may keep our nation's heroes away from their families during the holidays, IBERIABANK branches throughout Louisiana are providing holiday cards for the public to stop-in and sign. These cards will be sent to American troops throughout the world. Cards are available at all Louisiana IBERIABANK branch locations now through Tuesday, November 26th.
"We are excited about this opportunity to support and show appreciation to our overseas troops by sending greetings from Acadiana during the holiday season," said Jerry Vascocu, Acadiana Market President. "All of us at IBERIABANK value our relationships with and have the highest respect for current members of the military and veterans. We encourage the community to take the time to visit a nearby branch and show their true spirit by sending words of encouragement to those who are most deserving of our gratitude."
Over the last six years, the "Holiday Mail for Heroes" program has collected millions of cards filled with messages of gratitude, encouragement, and holiday greetings from the American public for American soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, veterans, and military families in communities nationwide and on military installations around the world, and IBERIABANK is thrilled to join this effort. "We so appreciate IBERIABANK and its clients who join us in providing hope and encouragement to our military families this holiday," said Kay W. Wilkins, CEO of the American Red Cross South Louisiana Region. "We are proud to partner with IBERIABANK on this program and provide outreach to service members across the globe during a time that can be especially difficult."
