For the fifth year in a row, volunteers from the American Red Cross Greater New York Region handed out hot beverages to veterans and service members marching in the Veteran’s Day Parade on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue Nov 11.

Seven Greater New York volunteers and five JetBlue volunteers staffed a Red Cross Emergency Response Vehicle located at 26th St. and Madison Ave. In addition to hot beverages, they handed out snacks and bottled water donated by JetBlue, as well as information on the Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces program and the Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign. An estimated 500 veterans and service members were served.
