Students at the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) recently created Valentine's Day cards and heartfelt letters for our War Veterans and women and men in service across the world.
- Each year, Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) invites schools, individuals and organizations across Canada to make Valentine's Day cards in recognition of the valiant sacrifices made by our heroes. VAC became involved with the program in 1996, and has since been receiving and distributing personalized, handcrafted Valentines to Veterans across the country.
This year, 195 classes participated across the Board, and approximately 5,070 Valentine's Day cards were made.
- HCDSB is the largest Board across Canada to send out Valentine's Day cards to the men and women in service.
The Valentine's Day cards have been shipped out to the Veterans Affairs Office in Prince Edward Island, just in time for February 14th.
Thank you to our students and staff for participating each year in this worthwhile cause!
