Stempien VFW Post Collecting Clothing, Household Items, More for Needy Vets

Members of the PFC Ted Stempien VFW Post 8821 will
conduct their semi-annual clothing drive from 8 a.m. to noon
Saturday, March 19 at the post, 5104 S. Archer.

Donations of clothing will be accepted and later taken to the Jesse Brown VA Hospital, where they will be distributed to needy and homeless veterans.

Also accepted will be “goodies to send to the troops overseas,” according to a post press release.

Breakfast will be served at the event. Donations of “household goods” will be accepted and shared with “veterans who have recently found housing but have no possessions to their name, other than what they can carry on their backs,” a post representative said.

For more information, contact post Commander Mike DeRoss at (773) 403-3789.
