LETTER: Help Us Help the VA!
Aug 13, 2015 10:25AM ● Published by Kieran Gilman
My husband (who serves in the army) and I recently donated items to the Bedford VA. While we were there, they expressed to us that their greatest need right now is body wash- they rarely have enough and go through large amounts every week.
I have addressed this on my Facebook in hopes to get friends and family to make body wash donations. Right now we have about 20 and are looking to reach 100. I have since been trying to find a business to stand out in front of to get more donations from people in town. This is proving to be difficult. Most locations I have talked to require paperwork to go through corporate offices that may take a month or more to get approval.
I am hoping by reaching out to you we can help spread the word a little further. You reach a great number of people in town, or maybe you know of a place I could put a donation box? Our veterans have done so much for us and I would love for our community to give back to them in such a small but meaningful way!
Thank you for your time!
