Messages Made with Love

Second-graders at Great Neck Road crafted handmade messages on Valentine’s Day cards for local veterans on Feb 3.

The Valentines for Vets initiative, organized and collected by Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre, gave students the opportunity to decorate and write messages to veterans to express their gratitude and support on Valentine’s Day. The cards will be distributed in local senior centers and at the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center.  

“It’s one thing to buy a card off the shelf and it’s another thing to make a card for someone,” Assemblywoman Jean-Pierre told the students. “You are all doing something good for someone else you don’t even know and making their Valentine’s Day even brighter.”
