Operation Heart to Heart - Valentines for Troops

2019 Operation Heart to Heart - Valentines for Troops concluded on January 25th.

590 valentines and cards were collected by local Girl Scouts, brownies and daisies, Newtown High School, NYFS Social Rec Groups and various community members.

NYFS partnered with American Legion Post 202 Newtown to coordinate with the local soldiers who received the cards and distributed to members of their unit. The cards were divided up and sent to troops in South Korea, Afghanistan and a naval ship at sea. Take a look at the video below to see some of the amazing cards and valentines that were collected.

NYFS plans on running this event again in 2020. For more information or to be added to our email list to stay in the loop on events like this please contact:
