Congressman Vicente Gonzalez announced the first ‘Valentines for Vets’ program on Thursday.
The release states the program will collect and distribute Valentine’s Day cards to local veterans.

Office Hours: Monday – Friday

“Our brave service men and women are owed the greatest amount of respect and admiration for their sacrifice to our country. This Valentine’s Day, I hope the community will join me in honoring our troops with a small token of appreciation,” said Congressman Gonzalez in the release. “A heartfelt card or handwritten note is a great way to give back to those who have given so much for our country.”
The deadline to submit is Feb. 7. This aims to be an annual event.
