NEWBURGH – To honor the service of the region’s veterans, their service, and sacrifice, Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D, NY-18) announced his eighth annual “Valentines for Veterans” initiative and urged area residents to join him in making Valentine’s Day cards to send to our veterans.
The Valentines for Veterans program provides schools, families, individuals, and businesses in the Hudson Valley with the opportunity to send Valentine’s Day greetings to veterans.
The cards will be hand-delivered to veterans at the VA Hudson Valley Health Care Facility at Castle Point.
“America’s veterans deserve our undying gratitude for their service. Valentines are a small, but meaningful way for us to show veterans our thanks, said Maloney. “Every year, our Valentines for Vets program has brought a lot of joy to folks at Castle Point, and I hope you’ll help us do the same again this year. I encourage everyone in the Hudson Valley to pitch in for our vets for this Valentine’s Day.”
Interested participants should contact Maloney’s office at (845) 561-1259. Valentines may be mailed to or dropped off at his Newburgh District Office by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, February 9.
