Submit cards to Valentines for Vets

Heart-felt, handmade submissions are now being sought for the 5th Annual “Valentines for Vets,” a program of Rep. Abigail Spanberger, D-7th.

Virginians are encouraged to participate by dropping off or mailing cards to Spanberger’s district offices in Woodbridge and Fredericksburg. The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 5. Ahead of Valentine’s Day, her office will deliver the cards to area veterans and caregivers.

“Valentines for Vets is a wonderful opportunity for Virginia’s Seventh District to show our servicemembers and Veterans how much we appreciate their service and sacrifice,” said Spanberger. “Taking the time to design a valentine or write a heartfelt note is a small way to give back to those who have answered the call to serve our country. These heroes have earned our recognition, and I hope many of our neighbors will participate in this heartfelt tradition.”

Mail or bring cards to the Woodbridge district office at 2241D Tacketts Mill Drive, Woodbridge, VA 22192; or the Fredericksburg district office at 1380 Central Park Blvd., Suite 201, Fredericksburg, VA 22401.
