‘Operation Valentine’ back to boost service men, women

Drennan & Ford Funeral Home and Crematory has started its eighth-annual “Operation Valentine” collection program. The project allows community members to create a handmade Valentine card to be delivered to a U.S. veteran or active duty service person.

Some cards go to hospitalized service persons, while other recipients may be actively deployed or an elderly veteran. Cards will be distributed to both local and regional veterans as well as active duty and reserve service people.

More than 12,000 cards have been distributed in the past seven years.

Drennan & Ford owners Steve and Leah Ford will collect the valentines at Clallam and Jefferson County schools and other community clubs — including Greywolf Elementary in Carlsborg, Sequim Middle School and the Sequim Boys & Girls Club — on Feb. 2.

Valentines may also be brought to the Drennan & Ford office at 260 Monroe Road, Port Angeles, between 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Friday, through Feb. 2.

Drennan & Ford will then sort and package the valentines for distribution to the veterans and service people.
