About The Event
Myself, Jeannie Miller founder of Wounded Veterans Project Inc and my board member and owner of The Shamrock in Suffield, CT, Erica Rozanski would like to present to you a drive to help Veterans during this coronavirus outbreak.
But we NEED support from our community. Let’s ALL pull together to help our Veterans who always sacrifice for each one of us!!! Here’s the plan:
April 4th 2-4:00 Erica and I will host a DROP OFF at the Shamrock. We are seeking a CARE PACKAGE made by YOU! Please put in the package things you think are essential for a Veteran. We ARE asking that the package include a gift certificate to a local restaurant. This will help out local restaurants, feed economy AND feed a Veteran. Win win for everyone. Just come to The Shamrock on April 4th 2-4:00, drive in the back drive through, DON’T get out of your cars. Erica and I will be there to take your care package. Safety precautions will be taken into play so no one get out of your cars. DRIVE THROUGH AND DROP OFF.
Then April 5th 2-4:00 Veterans drive through, back of Shamrock, to pick up your care packages. We are asking all Veterans to show (show, not give) a copy of their DD214 as proof that you are a Vet. Do NOT get out of your cars. Drive through and receive your care package.
If any packages are left over, we will be donating to local first responders and medical providers!!! As they do so much for us all!!!!! Especially during times of crisis.
Erica and I can NOT do this by ourselves. We NEED the local community to pull together to make this happen for our Warriors!!!!!
So are you IN?????!!!!!! Yessss!!!! Let’s make this happen!!!
If you are a business and want to donate, we are asking that you spend your donation on gift cards to local restaurants and then come to our drop off date to donate. OR contact Erica or myself to get your donation to us when it is more convenient for you.
Thank you in advance from Erica and myself and Wounded Veterans Project Inc!!! Contact Erica and/or myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
Ideas for packages: Snacks and treats Canned goods Crosswords Toilet paper Cleaning wipes Drinks Puzzles Masks Gloves Anything you wish you had during quarantine they would love too!!!!
Also, some Vets have service dogs....don't forget about them! Maybe they need a toy, treats, food?
Your cash donation will be used to buy gift certificates to local restaurants to put in the care packages tonfeed a Veteran!!! This will also help the local restaurant community and the economy!! You may purchase as many as you wish. Thank you so much!!
