Peru State College Students Send Valentines to Hospitalized
(Peru, Neb.) More than 100 handmade and purchased Valentine’s Day cards are on their way to hospitalized veterans in Nebraska courtesy of Peru State College (PSC) students, faculty and staff. The cards are being sent as part of the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week, Feb. 10-16. Hundreds of thousands of cards and letters are expected to be delivered to hospitalized veterans across the country. The Valentines from PSC are being delivered to the VA Medical Centers in Lincoln and Omaha.
PSC President Dr. Ben Johnson said, “Valentine’s Day cards are a simple way to let our veterans know how much we appreciate their love for our country and the sacrifices they made so that we can live in freedom. Their courage, valor and service will never be forgotten.”
PSC students involved in Peru’s Individual Leaders of Today (PILOT) Club, a community service group, and Phi Beta Lambda, a state and national business association, were among those involved in the project.
