In recognizing the veterans of Illinois’ 16th Congressional District, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL 16) and his staff will be collecting St. Patrick's Day holiday greeting cards and letters for the residents of the LaSalle Veterans Home.
Members of the community are welcomed and encouraged to participate in celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with our local heroes by participating in this holiday card drive.
In making the announcement,Congressman Kinzinger released the following statement:
“As Americans, we are lucky to live in the land of the free because of the brave men and women who have served and sacrificed, to defend this great nation and the values we hold dear. It’s important to celebrate and recognize the unwavering dedication our veterans devout to our country and communities. And I believe we can—and should—show our veterans know how much we appreciate them any time throughout the year.
“So after a great success last year, I ask you to please join me in sharing our heartfelt thanks and good wishes to our hometown heroes this St. Patrick’s Day. To participate, please mail your cards, letters, Irish blessings or proverbs to my Ottawa office at 628 Columbus Street. If you’re in the area, please drop it off at the office during normal business hours. Our collection deadline will be close of business on Tuesday, March 17, and the cards will be delivered to the Illinois Veterans Home a wee bit after.
"Thank you in advance for your help in making this card drive special.”
For anyone with follow-up questions or clarifications, please contact the Congressman’s Ottawa Office and a member of the staff will be available to assist.
