NEW HARTFORD, N.Y.--- Democratic Congressman Anthony Brindisi paid a visit to veterans to deliver a special gift. It's his annual Cards for Heros campaign. Brindisi launched the campaign back on December 9th.
Multiple large envelopes packed with holiday cards made by local students and the community delivered to local veterans.
The gathering was held at the adult dining and activity center in the New Hartford Town Offices. Families and students in his district were encouraged to make the cards.
The Congressman said that it's important that our veterans don't feel forgotten especially around the holidays.
"I think it means a lot for the veterans and even more seeing the response from some of the school children who have really made this a class project to write these cards out and thank our heroes for the service they gave to our country," said Brindisi.
The Congressman collected hundreds of cards in a similar campaign back on Valentine's Day.
