Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

 

I hope you are home, practicing Social Distancing and staying healthy.  If you are one of our front-line defenders, thank you for your sacrifices.

Reporting time for this year is over but it doesn’t mean working for our veterans and their families ends.  Please keep track of your hours, mileage and $$ spent on this program so you can report them to the next Chairman.

Yes, a Stay at Home Order and Social Distancing can make serving our veterans and their families challenging during this time but there are still things we can do.  If you are crafty, Thinking of You or Well Wishes cards and send them to our Veterans Homes and Hospitals.  Not creative?   If you are the person in your household that takes the essential trip to the pharmacy and grocery store, offer to do the same for a veteran who may be high risk. Call, text, email or video a veteran or a member of their family.  We need to think outside of the box during these uncertain times.

I want to thank all of you for working the Veterans and Family Support Program this year.  There was a lot of amazing things that were done in Auxiliaries around this state.

Stay home, stay healthy.

Loyally,

Cookie Little, Chairman

Veterans and Family Support
