This Valentine's Day will be very different for most of our veterans this year. While many of them cannot be with their loved ones, or celebrate the holiday with anyone, we have decided to do something special. Starting February 8th, The Utica Center for Development/Central New York Veterans Outreach Center will be running our Valentines for Veterans campaign, where you can purchase a paper heart for a veteran for $1 and pick from 1 of 3 sayings, or create your own! All proceeds directly benefit our veterans through our veterans programs. When making a donation, please choose from the options below to put on your paper heart. We are looking forward to seeing the smiling faces of our veterans and can't wait to share them with you all! All Valentine's will be distributed between our three agencies in Utica, Watertown, and Catskills as well as adult care facilities in the area. Feel free to choose a specific location for your valentine if you'd like!
Happy Valentine's Day. Thank you for your service!
I am sending you a special valentine wish. Thank you for protecting my freedom, I hope your day is filled with love!
To my hero on Valentine's Day, thank you for your courage and bravery.
Create your own qoute that can be sure to put a smile on a veterans face.
