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 3 p.m.
Saturday, October 28 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 part of the "day of change," as post members are calling it, will be speakers on personal health care and suicide prevention.

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.
