This past Sunday we took meals and presents to 28 veteran families. In these 28 families were 58 children that we were able to buy not just one but several presents for. Thank you to all that donated and helped with this over the last couple of weeks. We also received coats, socks, pants, blankets, and toiletries that went to local homeless veterans. We truly are blessed with great supporters that give so that we can do this every year.
We not only severed older veterans but also active soldiers as well and covered from Buffalo, down to Ellicottville, and over to Dansville. The one stop that really weighs in on me is when we stopped at a very old trailer that had a young couple living in it with a new born baby. Their bedroom was set up in the living room so that they didn't have to heat the whole trailer. He is an active reservist and the only thought that runs through my mind even as I write this is that shouldn't someone who is willing to risk their life for our country more deserving than that? Needless to say they were very appreciative of the food, baby wipes, and diapers we were able to provide them because of your giving!
