ADOPT A W. F. GREEN VETERANS HOME VET AGAIN:

Thanks to the efforts of Sondra Mckinley we’re going to be able to visit the vets at the W. F. Green home in Bay Minette for another Christmas. December 9 is the day to make our visit.

As always, we ask folks to pitch in to give and support those who’ve given and supported us in the past. There are two former Conecuh County residents in the Veterans Home now so that puts it a little heavier on Conecuh to step up and support their own too.

As per usual WPPG Radio Station will be a drop point for items. Just keep in mind the hours they are open to receive is 6 AM to 9 AM. Wolff Motor Company will also take in items for us as well as the Chamber of Commerce. We really need a drop point in Repton and Castleberry and I’ll be working with some of the folks in those two spots to take on that responsibility.

In the Andalusia area FOX 107.7 radio station will gladly accept items for this project. As more places become available I’ll post them also.

As to items ok for the vets:

Long sleeved t-shirts/pullovers ok

Hats, ball caps too

soap

Shaving Cream/aftershave gel OK

Portable CD players with headphones

The following are acceptable candies:

Be creative, surprises always go over well. Include a note thanking them for their service, wishing them well, a Merry Christmas, they will love it.

Please, no sprays or powders, candy containing nuts, again, no razors or other sharp objects.


Show your appreciation.

Should anyone wish to go with us on delivery day we will have room for a few folks, just get with me and we’ll coordinate what we can.
