Volunteers send their love to troops

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - An area tax service is joining forces with the community to send Valentine's greetings to our troops overseas.

At a very festive office in Longview, citizens and customers were given the opportunity to create hand made Valentine's for those serving abroad. The idea sprung from a partnership with a California organization working to show troops they are appreciated year round.

"We want to send our troops the support and love that they need to let them know that we appreciate all they're doing for our country," said event organizer Elisabeth Reed. "We just want to tell them happy Valentine's day from liberty tax and all our clients."

The Valentine's collected over the next week will be sent to troops serving overseas before Valentine's day.
