Senator Hassan and Laura Landerman-Garber of Hollis Announce Cards 2 Connect Program for NH Veterans

Senator Hassan and Landerman-Garber Encourage All Granite Staters to Write Cards that Will be Delivered to NH Veterans who are Unable to See Their Loved Ones Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan and Laura Landerman-Garber of Hollis announced a new program, Cards 2 Connect, to help spread some joy to New Hampshire veterans who have been unable to see their loved ones due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Senator Hassan and Landerman-Garber encourage all Granite Staters to participate by writing a card that will be delivered to New Hampshire veterans.

 

“COVID-19 has prevented veterans across New Hampshire from seeing their loved ones in person, and we wanted to give all Granite Staters an opportunity to show these veterans that we’re thinking about them, and to also thank them for their service,” Senator Hassan said. “I am so grateful to Laura for her leadership in helping get this program off the ground, and I encourage all Granite Staters to join us in showing our appreciation for veterans.”

 

“The thought of veterans being isolated and lonely right now touches all of us, and through sending cards we can find a way to send appreciation, care, and love to our veterans and let them know that we will never forget them,” said Laura Landerman-Garber of Hollis. ”Even though we’ve all been six-feet apart, here in the Granite State, we are always close at heart.”

 

Granite Staters of all ages can drop off a card at the Hollis Pharmacy or send a card to the following address:

 

Laura Landerman-Garber 

Card Challenge

400 Amherst Street

Suite 407

Nashua 03063

 

All cards will be delivered to the NH Veterans Home, Manchester VAMC, and White River Junction VAMC with appropriate heath precautions.

 

Senator Hassan’s office is partnering with Landerman-Garber on this project due to her years of work on the successful Military Holiday Card Challenge, in which Granite Staters and Americans across the country can send holiday cards to active duty military troops. For her efforts to spread cheer to military members during the holidays, Senator Hassan recognized Landerman-Garber as September 2018’s Granite Stater of the Month
