SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY (January 15, 2015) – The Sullivan County Federation for the Homeless is sweet on Veterans.
They want to know if any young people who feel that way too would like to show it in a special way this Valentine’s Day. The Federation is asking kids to help to make sure that this year on Valentine’s Day, our Sullivan County Vets and active military personnel know just how much we love them.
Kathy Kreiter, director of the Federation, has a few tips. “You can create a card using whatever craft supplies you have. Simply fold a piece of paper in half and then draw a heart, or you can get fancy with stickers and cut-outs. For a special touch, use patriotic colors or designs on your valentine. Write a message to a veteran inside the card. You can thank the veteran for service to our country or just write an uplifting message of greeting. Remember that the veteran receiving your card may be male or female and may have served in the military in many different capacities.”
The valentines can be sent to: Valentine4Vets, SC Federation for the Homeless, PO Box 336, Monticello, NY 12701.
They will be distributed at the Federation Veteran’s Pantry on February 13. The bi-weekly pantry is free and open to all veterans and active duty military personnel living in Sullivan County, and is held at the Federation located at 9 Monticello St in Monticello.
