UTICA, N.Y. – Congressman Anthony Brindisi delivered cards to veterans Monday, that were collected through his ‘Holiday Cards for Heroes’ campaign.
Local residents, students and others were invited to send cards to Brindisi’s office throughout the month of December to show veterans that their service is appreciated this holiday season. Brindisi headed to the the adult dining and activity center at New Town Hall at the Orchards to deliver the cards on Monday.
"Well I think it means a lot to the veterans especially around the holiday season, and even more, it’s been great seeing the response from the school children around the area who really made this part of a school project to write these cards out and thank our heroes for the service that they gave to our country," said Brindisi.
Students wrote messages in the cards, thanking the veterans for their service.
Cards were collected through Friday, Dec. 20.
