“Valentines for Vets”

February 22, 2010

SRPH students conducted their annual “Valentines for Vets” drive by collecting notes of appreciation and thanks for injured veterans’ service and sacrifice for our country. “Valentines for Vets” is a national drive to support and promote National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week, Feb. 6-13. The students collected money and supplies from other students and faculty, and received some donations from local hotels to present 88 Valentines bags to the veterans at the Veterans Administration hospital in Temple. Each bag included basic toiletries such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant and lotion, cookies and other supplies.
