CLOTHING DRIVE FOR HOMELESS AND HOSPITALIZED VETERANS
There are 2,437 homeless veterans in southern Arizona. Of these, 385 have served in either Iraq or Afghanistan and 243 are female.
As the weather gets cooler and you begin getting out clothing for the cooler evenings, please consider setting aside items to donate to the homeless veterans.
- The annual clothing drive will take place on Saturday, October 31 from 9-11 in the Madera parking lot.
- The homeless will need warm clothing such as hoodies, sweatshirts and knitted scarves and hats.
- New and gently used clothing will be accepted if used items are clean and in good condition.
- Socks and underwear must be new.
- Backpacks are always appreciated.
- In addition to warm clothing for both men and women, donations of unused travel sized toiletries will be accepted.
- Hospitalized veterans love to get notepads, greeting cards and calendars.
Mary Lou Kiger is the contact person for the clothing drive. Donations can be dropped off at her house prior to the drive. (Address: 2697 E Sawyer. You might wish to call first: 625-3235.)
