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
Shaving Cream/aftershave gel OK
Portable CD players with headphones
Tie on Bags for wheelchairs (store stuff)
Puzzles; (no more than 300 pieces each)
Small pouches/wallets worn around neck
PJ/jogging pants/cotton shorts M-3x
Dial/Dove Body lotion/wash, no bar
NO RAZORS; deodorant
CD’s preferably oldies; old time

Small objects for hands; stress ball,
Portable radios/CD players for rooms
The following are acceptable candies:
Tootsie Roll Pops; Sugar free soft candy; Soft Snack, Cheese Puffs, Puff Corn, Cookies
Packaged snacks such as Little Debbies.
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.
