The Hearts for Heroes program honored vets at the NELA War Veterans nursing home in Monroe.
Griffin Funeral Home provided the craft paper, glue, and glitter for the special valentines.
Volunteers from the ARCO art class, which serves those in the community with disabilities, came in to make valentines for the vets. Artist Andrea May provided help and ideas in decorating the cards.
Organizers say this program is a perfect blend of the two groups to give back to local veterans.
"They're the backbone to the United States, to our community," said Michelle Griffin, community outreach coordinator at the funeral home. "They've fought and they've sacrificed, and they need to know they're loved."
Some of the veterans even handmade their own valentines to give to loved ones while swapping stories with each other and volunteers.
This is the first year of Hearts for Heroes.
