Students and staff from across the East Greenbush Central School District made more than 2,000 Valentines for local senior citizens. The Valentines were collected by the East Greenbush Teachers Association and delivered to residents of Van Rensselaer Manor, Hawthorne Ridge and Evergreen Commons Nursing Home for Valentine’s Day.
Valentines were also given to the Rensselaer County Deputy Commissioner to distribute to senior citizens who receive Meals on Wheels.
“I’m blown away with the amount of cards we received and the effort that students and teachers put into this,” said Columbia Social Studies teacher and EGTA member Daniel Wagner. “Many holidays are being brightened by these special Valentines.”
