What is an impromptu pizza party to a veteran? How special is it to receive Tim Horton’s coffee and donuts when you didn’t expect it? Special treats like these in the life of service men or women can make the difference between an ordinary day confined to a hospital or a day that’s just a little better than the one before.
This is the 5th year we are supporting the veterans at Willow Lodge at The VA Medical Center on Bailey Ave. in Buffalo. We are actively collecting your monetary donation from Memorial Day through Independence Day. Willow Lodge at the VA Hospital is a 20-bed Community Living Center that focuses on hospice/palliative care and rehabilitation. In honor of veterans and our 5th year, will you give generously to brighten the day of a veteran?
Your generous donation allows the recreational therapist to purchase goodies and plan spontaneous fun throughout the year for our veterans. We will be collecting monetary donations with which we will purchase gift cards for these items from Wegmans, Bocce Pizza, and Tim Horton’s to brighten the day for our service men and women in Willow Lodge.
There will be a Mission Committee representative with a veteran in the narthex after services on six Sundays, starting Sunday, May 27, to receive donations. Just look for the red, white, and blue. (If you write a check to North Church, please write “Veterans Project” on the memo line.) Or you can give securely and safely online.
