Saturday is the deadline to submit valentines for Congressman John Shimkus’ “Valentines for Heroes” program. The annual program delivers thousands of valentines to veterans and current members of the Armed Forces in Illinois’ 15th district.
“Thousands of valentines have come into my offices every year since we began Valentines for Heroes,” Shimkus said. “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.”
Valentines can be submitted until Saturday, February 4th. They should be submitted without addressing a specific person and without including the last name, or address, of the person submitting.
They can be dropped off at or mailed to any of the following addresses:
- 15 Professional Park Drive, Maryville, IL 62062
- City Hall Room 12, 110 East Locust Street, Harrisburg, IL 62946
- 101 North Fourth Street, Suite 303, Effingham, IL 62401
- 201 North Vermilion Street, Suite 218, Danville, IL 61832
