“Share the Love” for Our Veterans in February

“Share the Love” for Our Veterans in February

 

My office is pleased to announce a project that we are working on during the month of February with Veterans, Inc., a great Worcester-based organization which helps veterans in need.

Keeping in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we are asking residents in the 8th Worcester District (Bellingham, Blackstone, Millville and Uxbridge) to “Share the Love” for our veterans by helping us provide basic personal care products and other necessities for our vets who may need a little help.

We are placing large yellow drop boxes at the town libraries in each of the towns, from February 1st – February 28th.  At the end of the month we will be picking up the drop boxes and working with Veterans, Inc. to distribute the supplies to veterans as quickly as possible.

Suggested items include:

Gas cards
Bus cards (public transit passes)
Gift cards to Walmart
Toothbrushes and toothpaste
Feminine products
Soap and shampoo
Nail clippers
Sheets and pillow cases
New male and female underwear
Socks
Warm boots
Jackets/Fleeces
Jeans

On behalf of our veterans, thank you for sharing some love!  We’ll post an update on the drive here in early March.
