El Dorado Police Department officers’ faces lit up as they were handed Valentine’s Day cards by three kids Thursday. The children, along with volunteers from Project SOUTH — a military ministry focused on spreading love to military personnel and veterans – delivered hand-made cards from Union County students to the police and fire departments, as well as the Union County Sheriff’s Office. “We just wanted to let you know you’re not forgotten,” said Christie Williams, a volunteer with the organization and U.S. Army veteran. Project SOUTH partnered with county schools, districts, churches, public libraries and some businesses to create homemade cards for local first responders, service members overseas and veterans and people in county nursing homes. Cards will continue to be delivered to veterans and those in nursing homes throughout today. Terry Sturgis with the organization said those overseas began receiving their cards this week and hope all are delivered by today.
