On Feb. 17, Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick, R-Tonawanda, delivered cards to Cheryl Lepsch, head of the “Jammies for GI’s” program for distribution to troops across the world. “Jammies for GI’s” is a non-profit organization dedicated to supplying wounded troops with personal items left behind when they were evacuated from a war zone.


“It’s important that we honor our brave troops who protect our freedom and let them know we are thinking about them and appreciate their service,” Legislator Hardwick said. “Thanks to the generosity of our students, who even at a young age understand the importance our of soldiers’ contribution to this country, we are able to bring a little cheer to those who are overseas.”


Partnering with his colleagues in the Legislature’s Republican Caucus, Legislator Hardwick reached out to area schools asking students to create cards for veterans and soldiers. Students from schools in Legislator Hardwick’s district created more than 1,000 cards for various organizations. Cards will be sent overseas and distributed to the men and women who are serving our country. The following schools participated: Fletcher Elementary, Mullen Elementary, New Life Christian, St. Stephen School, Huth Road Elementary, Kaegebein Elementary and Holmes Elementary.
