Representative Adam Kinzinger is calling on his constituents to help write St. Patrick Day Cards for local veterans.

The cards will be given to residents of the LaSalle Veteran’s Home.

In a statement, Kinzinger said “We are lucky to live in the land of the free because of the brave men and women who have served and sacrificed… I believe we can –and should- show our veterans know [sic] how much we appreciate them any time throughout the year.”

Cards containing well wishes may be sent to Kinzinger’s office at 628 Columbus Street in Ottawa, or can be dropped off during normal business hours before March 17th.
