2023 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Veterans

On Monday, January 16, 2023 – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the National Day of Service, over 50 volunteers
gathered at the Alive Center for our 3rd Annual Valentine’s Day Gifts for Veterans service project. Our youth volunteers
worked side-by-side with adult volunteers to make 100 Valentine’s Day Cards, window decor, and decorate bags for
the residents of LaSalle Veterans Home. We were honored to hear from two veterans: Army veteran Anestacio Ferralez, Jr. “JR” and Army veteran and Naperville councilman Dr. Benjamin White.

Special thanks to all of the individuals and businesses from the community who donated supplies for this project.
