Special cards created for local veterans thanking them for their service
Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs helped lead a Valentines for Veterans project with 5th grade students at Cheektowaga Middle School. Jacobs worked closely with Principal Gretchen Sukdolak to coordinate this event where middle school students created hundreds of
hand-made Valentine’s Day cards for veterans both locally and overseas.
“This was an opportunity to share with the students what it means to be a veteran and explain why veterans, both past and present, should be honored for their service and for protecting the freedoms we enjoy in this country,” stated Jacobs. “This is a great community service project.”
County Clerk Jacobs will be delivering these cards, just in time for Valentine’s Day, to area veterans during an upcoming “Thank-A-Vet” Outreach at the Leonard Post in Cheektowaga.
