Kanakakee, IL… State Representative Lindsay Parkhurst (R-Kankakee) is launching a “Valentines for Veterans” program. She is inviting students and other interested citizens to participate in sending handmade greetings and well wishes to those who’ve served their country with pride.
“It’s important to remember our veterans on all holidays and this is a great chance for us to show them the love and appreciation they deserve,” Rep. Parkhurst said. “Part of their service may have involved being away from loved ones, let’s honor them on Valentine’s Day. ”
All ages are invited to create a card or drawing. Valentines will be collected at Rep Parkhurst’s office at 370 E. Court Street in Kankakee by February 10th. The cards will be delivered to veterans across the district in time for Valentine’s Day.
