I’m very happy to report, after one huge HelpVets pickup in February, our veteran donations for this lodge year, as of February 24th are $67,512!
When I mentioned “if you have a hankering to clean out your closets we have space in the pod” I did not anticipate the amount of donations we would get! I was amazed that our members contributed $13,665 in donations in February for our veterans. Thank you to all of you who made those donations and also to those who helped empty the pod!
We still have a need for donations of “NEW” clothing for our vets. We need the basics of socks, shorts, t-shirts, jeans, fleece jackets, heavy jackets, sweaters and heavy shirts for our homeless vets. Please use the green barrel in the lounge for your donations. If you wish to contribute, but don’t want to go out to shop for your donation, you can send a check, or drop off money in the Vet jar on the bar and we will do the shopping for the needed items.
Thank you again to our lodge members for your generosity for those who gave so much to our country’s safety and freedom.
My name is David Sides and I'm a member of the Outreach Department for The Pleural Mesothelioma Center.
Countless veterans are currently suffering from life-threatening illnesses that are a result of exposure to asbestos, a material that was commonly used in hundreds of military applications, products, and ships because of its resistance to fire. Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma even qualify for special benefits from the U.S Department of Veteran Affairs.
We recently published an educational guide about pleural mesothelioma, the most common type of mesothelioma.
