Join Pebble Tossers as we honor and thank the Veterans at the Trinka Davis Veterans Village. Our Cause Area for May is US Troops + Veterans. Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. There are many ways you can say thank you to our Troops and Veterans.
COVID has exacerbated loneliness and social isolation for Veterans living in long-term care facilities. Pebble Tossers volunteers have the opportunity to bring some cheer to the veterans.
About the Project:
Option 1: Volunteers will make 10 cards, notes, or drawings to show their appreciation for the Veterans' service and to lift their spirits.
Option 2: If you are feeling even more patriotic and grateful for their service, the Veterans would love to receive treat bags. There are 40 veterans at Trinka Davis. Volunteers can make any number of small individual bags with some of the items from the wish list or send the items separately.
Wish list items include (complete list will be emailed) hygiene items, markers, socks, word puzzles, masks, t-shirts, laundry items, and a variety of snacks.
