Harder Invites Central Valley to Participate in First Annual Valentines for Veterans Program
Modesto, CA – Representative Josh Harder (CA-10) announced his first annual Valentines for Veterans initiative and invited his neighbors throughout the Central Valley to join him in making valentines to deliver to area veterans. The event gives local schools, families, individuals, businesses, and other organizations the opportunity to make valentines to show our ongoing appreciation for the service of our veterans. Rep. Harder will collect the valentines and distribute them to veterans through partner organizations including the Pacific Heroes Project as well as local American Legion and VFW chapters in advance of Valentine’s Day.
“I’m always working to make sure our vets get the benefits and support they earned through their selfless service to our country – but there’s more to be done,” said Rep. Harder. “My Valentines for Veterans program will give everyone a chance to make a small gesture that could have a large impact and remind our veterans that we won’t forget their heroic service.”
Valentines may be mailed or hand-delivered to Rep. Harder’s Modesto office at 4701 Sisk Road, Suite 202 Modesto, CA 95356. Cards are due on February 10th. Interested participants should contact Rep. Harder’s office at (209) 579-5458 for more information.
Representative Harder is reaching out to local schools and service organizations to encourage participation in the program. A flyer with more information is available here.
Since taking office, Rep. Harder has worked tirelessly to ensure our veterans receive the services they earned. Last year, Rep. Harder helped 300 veterans cut through red tape to access nearly $250,000 in earned benefits. He’s also passed legislation to help the families of fallen servicemembers, pushed the White House to cover health care for Vietnam Veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange, and announced a federal investment of $150,000 to support homeless veterans in the Central Valley.
