I am always gratified at the generosity of our Ocean View Grange members. In a desire to honor and thank our injured Veterans, we started a drive to provide ditty-bags filled with items useful to our veterans who are at Togus VA Medical Center. The list below shows what kind of items we supplied and those members who helped.

Toenail Clippers
Good razors
Extra blades
Toothbrushes
Soap.
Shaving cream
Hairspray
Hair brushes
Inexpensive razors
Nail clippers
Mouthwash
Dental floss
Toothpaste
Shampoo
Deodorant
Hair combs

These items were made possible by the generosity of the following members: Gayle and Rick Bedigian, Larry and Diane Bailey, Peg Fields, Ben and Judy Norton, Neva and Steve Joseph, Debbie Rogers, Leslie Korpinen, Trip Woodbridge, Gina Neilson, Nat Lyon, Gillie and Rob Sloat, Dick and Terry Bomba, Jeff and Tina Riedl.

We want to give a special thank you to Glen Cove Dental Associates in Rockland. When asked if they had anything they could donate they immediately brought out a couple of boxes full of toothbrushes, mouthwash, floss etc. These were not free samples. They bought them but were very happy to help.

Sister Debbie and Sister Neva will be delivering all the items Friday, April 21, 2017.

 


Webmaster Note: As a reminder, we publish an updated list of volunteer and donation opportunities for our Veterans each month in the Community Service Section of the Program Books and Information Page.
