Students throughout the Sachem Central School District spread gratitude and support for U.S. military veterans by creating more than 1,000 Valentine’s Day cards for them.

As part of the community initiative sponsored by the Office of Suffolk County Legislator William Lindsay of the eighth district, students inscribed personalized messages on colorful heart-shaped cards, expressing their appreciation to the nation’s veterans. They dressed up their vibrant creations by applying paper doilies and stickers to them. 

In addition to the cards, several district schools assembled Valentine’s Day bags, which were donated to Veterans Affairs hospitals across Long Island.
