PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS -- Once again, a member of Virginia’s congressional delegation wants to share some love with the Commonwealth’s veterans.
Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger has launched her fourth annual Valentine's for Vets program.
According to a release, it will collect and distribute Valentine’s Day cards to veterans living in the Seventh Congressional District.
“Hundreds of thousands of active-duty servicemembers and Veterans call Virginia home. I’m proud to launch, for the fourth year in a row, our Valentines for Vets program as a small way to express our respect and gratitude for our neighbors across the Seventh District who put on the uniform and answered the call to serve,” said Spanberger. “I hope that many Virginians will take a moment to design a valentine, write a handwritten card, or send a heartfelt note to our Veterans and Veteran caregivers. These heroes have earned our recognition, and I look forward to our office showing them just how much their fellow Virginians recognize their sacrifice.”
Cards can be sent to her district office in Prince William County by mailing them to 2241D Tacketts Mill Drive, Woodbridge, VA 22192.
