U.S. Rep. Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) will host a “Thanksgiving Thank You” program to collect notes of appreciation for veterans.

The campaign launched on Veterans Day and will culminate with delivery of the notes to veterans in time for Thanksgiving.

Through the drive, Sherrill is asking residents of the 11th congressional district, particularly students, to write the thank-you notes to show appreciation for the dedication and bravery of the district's military veteran community and to share goodwill as the holiday season approaches, her office said in an announcement of the program.

Residents are invited to drop off their cards and notes to Sherrill’s office in Parsippany  through Monday, Nov. 22. Cards submitted in envelopes should not be sealed or closed unless mailed to the district office.

The office is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 8 Wood Hollow Road, Suite 203, Parsippany.

“New Jersey veterans have bravely served this nation from the Revolutionary War to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Sherrill said.  “Veterans Day is the time to come together as a nation to show our appreciation and to honor all who have served in our Armed Forces. That is why I am launching today’s Thanksgiving Thank You program to show our local veterans how deeply NJ-11’s appreciation for their service runs. I encourage all residents, especially students, to show your thanks and join us in writing a note to a veteran in our community.”
