State Representative Jackie Haas (R-Kankakee) is launching her third annual “Valentines for Veterans” program to bring joy to local veterans in her 79th District. Representative Haas invites all area residents to participate in making handmade valentine greetings with well-wishes to our veterans. Valentines will be accepted at her district office, 370 E. Court Street in Kankakee, until February 10th.
“Our Veterans are a big part of our community and these valentines are a small thank you of our appreciation for all that they have done and continue to do for us,” said Rep. Haas. “This is the third year I’ve done this program and I am continually impressed by how our community comes together to spread a little joy to those most important to us—I know this year will be no different.”
All ages are invited to create a card or drawing. The cards will be delivered to 79th District veterans at the Manteno Veterans Home in time for Valentine’s Day.
For any further questions about the event please contact her district office at 815-523-7779.
