WOODBRIDGE, V.A.— U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today announced the launch of her fourth annual “Valentines for Vets” program to collect and distribute Valentine’s Day cards to Seventh District Veterans.

Virginians are encouraged to participate in “Valentines for Vets” by dropping off or mailing cards to Spanberger’s new Prince William County district office in Woodbridge. The deadline for submission is Thursday, February 9, 2023.

Ahead of Valentine’s Day, Spanberger’s office will deliver the submitted cards to area Veterans and caregivers.

“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.”

Spanberger’s Prince William County district office is located at the below mailing address:

2241D Tacketts Mill Drive

Woodbridge, Virginia 22192

In previous years, Virginia community members, service organizations, and K-12 students have crafted thousands of handwritten messages for local Veterans and sent them to Spanberger’s district offices as part of Valentines for Vets.

During the first annual Valentines for Vets alone, her offices received more than 1,900 valentines.
