Valentines For Veterans from The Town of Pike Road

Last year the Town of Pike Road collected 1,500 Valentines For Veterans! They are hoping to collect even more this year, but we cannot do it without YOUR help! We would like to invite you to help us Share the Love! You can easily do so by dropping off a card (or two) in the large box located in the lobby of Town Hall. We will be collecting cards until Friday, February 12. You can drop them off between 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. weekdays. The Town of Pike Road will be sending these cards to local veterans who are hospitalized or being cared for through the Montgomery and Tuskegee Veterans Medical Centers. If you know of others who would like to join this effort, feel free to share this with them! More Cards=More Love. We look forward to seeing all the colorful acts of kindness that come in!
