Santabarbara Delivers Holiday Cards to Veterans

On Thursday, Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara (D – Rotterdam) and members of the Rotterdam AmVets Post 35 delivered hundreds of Holiday Cards prepared by elementary school students to patients and veterans in residency at the Albany VA Hospital.

“For all of the sacrifices made by our veterans, at the very least they deserve to feel some ‘Holiday Spirit’,” said Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara. “The Holiday Cards for Heroes Project helps to do just that.”

The cards were distributed to and collected from school districts throughout the 111th Assembly District by Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara where students were able to color the cards and write holiday-related notes to residents at the hospital.
