The students of St. James Catholic School created Valentine cards, poems, letters and drawings to be forwarded to Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC), in Prince Edward Island. VAC distributes these valentines to Veterans in long-term facilities across the country in time for Valentines Day. Shown above are Brandon Saikkonen (Grade 5) and Amanda Mayer (SK) who teamed up to create a Valentine for Vets card.

January 26, 2007 - Each year, Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) invites schools from across Canada to craft and design valentines for the Valentines for Vets program. Valentines are sent to VAC’s Head Office in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, where they are sorted and repackaged for distribution to Veterans in long-term facilities across the country in time for Valentines Day. The entire student body at St. James Catholic School will create Valentine cards, poems, letters and drawings to be forwarded to VAC.


The St. James Catholic School Valentines for Vets school endeavour will take place Friday, January 26, 2007 throughout the day in each classroom.
