Writer provides month by month shopping list for hospitalized Veterans


As you know, the VFW Auxiliary is always begging for money to help our Veterans in the VA Hospital in Chillicothe. We have decided on a new approach that your readers might find easier and more willing to help.

We are asking everyone to keep this list handy so that when they go to the grocery, the dollar stores, or one of the big box stores, they will remember to pick up one of these items. We are designating a whole month for each item so you will have chance to give each month. Each item must be new and individually wrapped. Remember these are 99% for men. We buy special items for women Vets.

• Feb.-white crew socks ;
• March-flip flops (shower shoes);
• April-toothbrushes;
• May -toothpaste;
• June-bath soap;
• July- shampoo;
• Aug. laundry soap;
• Sept.- dryer sheets;
• Oct. note pads;
• Nov.-coffee; and
• Dec. snack crackers

We can always use deodorant. It must be alcohol free (Avon doesn’t use alcohol). There will be a poster up in our Post-#1388 which will change each month to remind members what is needed that month.

Please help us help our Veterans. God Bless Our Men and Women who Served and God Bless The United States of America.

Lauralyn Palmer, Secretary VFW
