Winter Clothing Drive
In an effort to cover more Homeless veterans in the Metro Detroit area we changed our program to include two additional non-profit organizations and set up a rotation. We still go shopping at Kohl’s for winter and personal clothing and purchase $2000.00 worth. With sales and discounts we have always gone over that amount in retail value. The three organizations are Michigan Veterans Foundation, Veterans Haven, Love a Michigan Vet Project.
KOHL’S SHOPPING TRIP
We had 17 members and friends (one Korean War Vet and one Iraqi War Vet) at breakfast at Bob Evans! We all went down Ford Road to meet Lisa (the manager) and her wonderful staff at Kohl’s. Once again Lisa made sure we got the best deal possible on the $1,999 and some odd cents that we spent. Treasurer Dew was on hand to ensure we did not go over the limit that we had requested from the Chapter. The group then separated to pick up the clothing collected at the VFW Post in Plymouth and the First United Methodist Church of Garden City. We then headed downtown to the Detroit Veterans Center to deliver the clothing. As always the Veterans that work and live there were very appreciative. Tyrone Chatman pulled the troops together to give us a special thank you.
Thank you to all who helped in any way!
