Donations are being sought to help make the holidays a little bit brighter for local veterans in need.
The Veterans Connected ministry is again organizing an Adopt-a-Soldier program and collecting donations for veteran families identified as having the most need through the Livingston County Veterans Services department. Veterans Connected Chairman Bryan Bradford says he has been running the program for the last ten years and the need has grown. Seven families or individuals have been identified and needs range from household items and clothing to car seats and home repairs. Bradford noted one young father inparticular needed a vehicle to get to work and they were able to make that happen, which will be presented to the veteran this week.
More information on the specific families and where to drop off donations or make arrangements to do so can be found in the attachment. (JM)
