Hope for Homeless Veterans
Veterans Day is coming quickly, which means it's time for me to once again ask for your generous donations in support of the terrific folks at Community Hope at the VA, who help homeless veterans restart their lives and regain their independence.
What's needed most this time?
Regular (not travel or jumbo) sizes of toiletries
-- toothbrushes and toothpaste, mouthwash, deodorants, body wash or soap, lotions, wipes, shampoos and conditioners, shaving items and socks, for both women and men
-- canned goods, cereal, oatmeal, tuna fish, pasta, and snack items
I will continue collecting through Sunday, November 18
, which will give me time to drop our donations off for our veterans by Thanksgiving, a wonderful way to say “thanks” for all they have done for us!
Please look for the bright BLUE bin with the flags attached in the Link!
I will be happy to shop for items, so we have a basket in the Narthex for donations, if that's easier for you than shopping. You may also wish to drop a monetary donation in the collection plate or at the office, marked "Community Hope."
Thank you! Emie Williams
Please donate your leftover Halloween candy, as well - the vets will love it!
