Send Valentines to vets

U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger has announced the launch of her fifth annual “Valentines for Vets” program to collect and distribute Valentine’s Day cards to Virginia veterans.

Participate by dropping off or mailing cards to Spanberger’s district office in Fredericksburg, located at 1380 Central Park Blvd., Suite 201, Fredericksburg, VA 22401. The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. Feb. 5.

Ahead of Valentine’s Day, Spanberger’s office will deliver the submitted 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—and I’m proud to relaunch this program for the fifth year in a row,” 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.”
