National Veterans Service Committee Activities

June 2017

by Nancy De Vito
The Veterans Committee is hoping for the support of the membership in purchasing our Restaurant raffle and our super 50/50. Caring for our veterans/military is always at the top of our list. We need all your support in helping us to provide continued support from care packages, to our nursing home Vets, military scholarships, fishing trips, Veterans day, Christmas, birthday and holiday cards, providing the holiday breakfast at base,  just to mention a few things we support. It's not a easy task trying to raise money but I pray that the membership help us in these efforts.

Our first fishing trip will be June 20. which will  have Vets from East Orange Veterans Hospital and the Navy. I sure hope the weather is beautiful and the fishing be great.

Thank you to Phyllis Willever for helping me make sleeping mat's for our Homeless Veterans. These sleeping mat's are crocheted from plastic bags they take 700 to 800 bags per mat. It very time consuming but if we can keep one vet off the ground its worth our time and energy. Anyone wishing to help in this project we would be happy to show you how they are made.

 The Veterans committee raffle tickets for our Newest fund raiser are in and ready for sale. For $20.00 a ticket ONE lucky winner has a chance to win 10 - $100.00 Gift Cards to 10 DIFFERENT RESTURANTS in Ocean County. Not only will you be supporting our Veterans/Military you will be bringing business to our local restaurant.
