Save Hospitalized Veterans Some Money... Give Them Your Unused Christmas and All Occasion Cards!
The Stamford Disabled American Veterans Chapter #13 has started an program to collect unused Christmas and all occasion cards to be distributed to the patients at the West Haven Medical Center and Rocky Hill Home and Hospital for them to send to their family and friends. Many of us have unused greeting cards lying around the house which we have purchased from one of the major veterans organizations, to support their fund raising, or cards from other sources. Bring the unused cards to the DAV meeting or all the commander Buffert to arrange for the chapter to pick-up the cards. Buffert Brooks will deliver the collected cards to West Haven Medical Center during the first week in December, 2000.
Also, the next time your favorite Veterans Organization sells greeting cards as a fund raiser, buy an extra box or two and donate the cards to the Chapter project, and have your local post or chapter do the same. Thank you for your support!
