Simsbury Metacomet Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1926 annual clothing drive for Holiday gifts for veterans in the Veterans Affairs Veterans Home in Rocky Hill starts on November 11 and runs until December 10. Donations of new clothing or accessories with tags on them are accepted. Please understand that many of the veterans in the Veterans Home have no family and these presents are the only ones they receive during the holidays. Some of the residents are widows and children of soldiers that lost their lives in service to our country. Items needed this year includes: new women’s and men’s clothing such as shirts, pants, sweaters and accessories; miscellaneous items including rechargeable razors, talking watches, battery operated alarm clocks and radios, UCONN, Red Sox, Yankees and Patriots items, and rechargeable toothbrushes; recreational items; Sundries; and women’s accessories. A complete listing is available at various locations about town including at the drop off locations. Drop boxes are located at Eno Hall, main fire station downtown Simsbury, Simsbury Public Library, CVS downtown, and the police station in Town Hall. Please, only new items.
Cash donations can also be made by sending checks to Simsbury Metacomet Post 1926 at PO Box 211 Simsbury CT 06070 and the VFW will purchase a present for you. Please indicate on the memo line that the donation is for the Holiday Clothing Drive.
