Students at Saint Pancras School in Glendale teamed up with Senator Joseph Addabbo to create and deliver thank you cards to veterans.

Saint Pancras School students saluted local veterans with personal hand-crafted cards thanking them for their dedication and service to the country.

First and second graders at the Glendale school crafted their cards as personal thank yous that were hand-delivered to veterans in the VA St. Albans Community Care Center by State Senator Joseph Addabbo on Wednesday, November 9.

The creative and colorful construction paper cards were dedicated to the veterans’ sacrifice and service from World War II to the current deployments to the Middle East.

“Each year, to honor the many brave men and women from Queens who have proudly served in the military and in our recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, my district offices support several youth groups to work on some great morale-boosting, holiday-themed projects designed to either applaud those now serving their country far from home, or to salute our heroic veterans housed in the VA St. Albans Community Care Center,” said Addabbo.

The vets were moved, yet delighted, he said, to receive the hundreds of heart-felt tokens of gratitude from the students remembering their service during Veterans Day.
