Representatives from Borough President James Oddo’s office joined with members of the United War Veterans Council to collect donations for veterans to be distributed this Valentine’s Day. In addition to donations collected at Borough Hall, the UWVC received handmade Valentine’s Day cards from students at the Hungerford School. The group plans to distribute the items to local veterans hospitals and centers as well as Walter Reed National Military Medical Center later this week. Borough Hall staff and the public donated sweets, cards, stuffed animals, gloves, hats and toiletries for veterans.
