Congresswoman Jennifer McClellan, who represents Virginia’s District 4, announced today the launch of her inaugural Valentines for Veterans program.

The program encourages residents of District 4 to deliver or mail Valentine’s Day cards to McClellan’s Richmond or Brunswick District Offices by February 2, 2024. On Valentine’s Day, McClellan and her staff will deliver the Valentines to veteran-serving organizations throughout Virginia’s District 4.

“Our Commonwealth is home to hundreds of thousands of active-duty servicemembers, veterans and military families,” McClellan said. “Our troops make the ultimate sacrifices to protect our nation, and we owe them a debt of gratitude. I am thrilled to launch my first-ever Valentines for Veterans Program to give back to our servicemembers and show our appreciation for their selfless service. These simple acts of kindness can make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.”

More information about Valentines for Veterans is available online.
