Send a Valentine to a Hero – 7th Annual
OVER 11,000 VALENTINES MAILED
The message is a simple one, “Thank you so much for what you do, we always need you.” This is just one of the many sweet messages from the heart of a child to a soldier or veteran in a project called OPERATION VALENTINE.
Chambers and James Funeral, Pet and Cremation Services are two of nearly 1000 exclusive Veterans & Family Memorial Care funeral homes providers across America who are sponsoring the 7th Annual~OPERATION VALENTINE initiative.
The project is simple and meaningful, according to Eric L. Fithyan, Owner. “Students and individuals throughout the community write messages to the troops and veterans on Valentine Cards, Cut-Out Hearts, or whatever they like and we make sure that they are delivered to our brave men and women serving overseas.”
Cards cannot include glitter, food or candy, but there are still many ways to personalize a handmade card. Write a message on them and say “Thank You,” tell them about yourself and wish them a Happy Valentine Day! Our troops are away from their loved ones and friends so they really want to know that people back home appreciate them. “Care packages are one thing, but this is a real morale boost”, said Eric Fithyan.
Valentine cards may be dropped off from now thru February 1 between 10am and 4pm at:
Chambers Funeral Home – 1030 Main Street – Wellsburg WV 26070
James Funeral Home – 1245 Main Street – Follansbee, WV 26037
If we are not here please drop into red bins on the front porches of either location. We are proud to be always serving and always caring.
