We're hosting a food drive for the veterans in dire need of our help from the Veterans Outreach Center August 9 at the Brockport Walmart: 6265 Brockport Spencerport Rd, Brockport, NY 14420.
We'll have a table at the front entrance to chat with patrons and hand them a flier listing the items the veterans need most. We hope they buy an item or two and donate them on their way out.
We've done this four other times, and they've all been fun, satisfying, and successful. We'll also be registering voters!
Feel free to wear a patriotic t-shirt but please leave the political gear at home. Helping our veterans is a non-partisan cause.
Please sign up for a two hour block between 8am and 4pm. Here is our current schedule:
8am - 10am: Patti, Tim, Kim (need 1-2 more)
10am - 12pm: Patti, Tim (need 3-4 more)
12pm - 2pm: Nancy, Helen, Jim D., Charlie A (need 2 more)
2pm - 4pm: none (need 4-6 volunteers)
Please also bring items to donate from home: personal hygiene items, non-perishable food (soup, cereal, tuna, coffee, beef jerky, PB&J, nuts, etc.).
