TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) Miss Texas 2019 Chandler Foreman visited the Waco and Temple VA clinics to hand out Valentine's Day goody bags and teddy bears.
More than 1,000 teddy bears and bags were donated by the Veterans Teddy Bear Project and the Women Veterans of Central Texas. They handed out teddy bears all through the day and will finish delivering them at the Dallas VA clinic on Monday, Feb 17th.
Foreman's uncle was a Vietnam veteran. She says spending time with veterans is very important to her.
"I'm able to spend this time with them and give them a smile and they give me a smile," she said.
"Just seeing the joy on their faces that we can have in a moment is so precious because it's so important to celebrate our heroes."
While pictures, games and activities didn't seem like much, Foreman said she was happy to encourage the public to volunteer and visit the VA clinics throughout Central Texas.
