GGRWC Project to Thank Our NC Veterans.
Join us in supporting the Salisbury Veterans' Health Care System.
From now until May 24, GGRWC will be collecting needed items to be delivered to the Veterans' facility in Salisbury, NC. Why? When asked how we could best assist our NC veterans, one of our most popular speakers, Ilario Pantano, Assistant Secretary of NC Veterans' Affairs, encouraged us last year to support our nearest veterans' home.
That home is in Salisbury. For the next 3 months, we will be collecting needed items for distribution to these veterans. Perhaps you can collect some yourself, or work with a school or scout troop to help meet the needs of those who served in our armed forces?
Non-cash contributions are used to make patients' stay more enjoyable. Items which are accepted include -
newspaper and magazine subscriptions, note cards & postage
coffee, sweeteners, creamers (including Keurig) and individually-wrapped snacks, fruit cups, soup cups, sugar-free snacks (jello, pudding), etc.
new or gently used clothing: sweat pants/tops (Sizes S, M, XL, 2XL), undershirts (Mens & Women's (Sizes S, M, XL, 2XL), men's boxers & briefs (Sizes S, M, XL, 2XL, 3XL)
toiletry items, especially foot/body powder, shaving cream and men's deodorant.
