Effingham, Ill – Earlier today the Effingham Public Library announced that they will once again be taking part in the Valentines for Heroes Project.
The project allows for anyone to create Valentines that will be given to the VA and local military facilities across the area.
Congressman John Shimkus (IL-15), said in a brief statement, “Thousands of valentines have come into my offices every year since we began Valentines for Heroes,”
“Elementary and middle school classes, church youth groups, homeschoolers, senior citizens and constituents from every part of the district have been overwhelmingly generous and supportive of our military men and women, past and present.”
Anyone interested in making a Valentine to give please visit the Effingham Public Library until February 9.
