Saddlewood Students Support Veterans on Valentine's Day

First grade students and staff members recently completed the first annual “Hearts for Heroes” collection at Saddlewood Elementary School.

Students in Mrs. Martin’s, Ms. Pink’s and Mrs. Chamberlain’s first grade classes collected much needed donations for the Albany Stratton VA Hospital.  Items included clothing, travel size toiletries/personal care items, large print books, coffee, creamer and sugar. Students also made valentine crafts and wrote letters to our heroes receiving care at the hospital. Additionally, students across all grade levels created personalized Valentine’s Day cards in support of the veterans.

These special crafts, letters, and cards were all delivered to the hospital, just in time for Valentine’s Day to show our heroes are hearts are with them.
