Baldwin Elementary School Students Send 1300 Valentines to Veterans

Students Spread Love and Gratitude to Men and Women of Service

Baldwin elementary schools continued their annual tradition of sending hundreds of hand-made cards with messages of gratitude to veterans in hospitals and nursing homes across the country through the “Valentines for Vets” programs associated with Nassau County and the Town of Hempstead. The offices of Nassau County Executive, Laura Curran, and assemblywoman, Judy Griffin, organized the effort for this year. A total of 1300 valentines from the Baldwin elementary schools were collected and will be delivered during the month of February in celebration of February 14th.
