Assemblyman Ed Ra (21st Assembly District) recently stopped by Gotham Avenue, Dutch Broadway and Stewart Manor schools in order to collect Valentine s Day cards students made as part of Councilman Ed Ambrosinos Valentines for Vets program. Ra and Ambrosino are shipping the hand-made valentines overseas where they will be shipped to hospitals overseas and delivered to the brave men and women of the United States Army.
The Valentines for Vets program is a tremendous way for our students to thank the patriots who put their lives on the line daily to protect our freedom, said Ra. The time and care that students from each of the Elmont schools put into these cards will certainly touch the lives of the brave men and women overseas. I would like to thank Councilman Ambrosino for putting together this event that thanks these brave individuals for their service to our nation.
