FREDERICKSBURG ADVANCE, ADELE UPHAUS

Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger this week launched her fifth-annual “Valentines for Vets” program, inviting Fredericksburg-area residents to write Valentine’s Day cards which her office will deliver to veterans and caregivers at area VA clinics.

Those wishing to participate can drop off or mail cards to Spanberger’s offices in Fredericksburg or Woodbridge by February 5.

“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—and I’m proud to relaunch this program for the fifth year in a row,” Spanberger said in a press release issued Wednesday“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.”

Virginians sent in more than 1,900 valentines during the first year of the program alone, according to the press release.

Participants can drop off or mail cards to the Fredericksburg district office at 1380 Central Park Boulevard, Suite 201, Fredericksburg, VA 22401.
