Special State Project: Operation Chillout

Helping Homeless Veterans

We collected $27.00 in cash last month at the club meeting. Thank you! Thank you!

A special thank you to Denise H., Debbie H., and Cheryl F. for representing our club by attending the Southern State Luncheon & Fashion Show. This was a fundraiser for Operation Chillout.

We are continuing helping with the Operation Chillout’s Winter Collection. This is a backpack prepared for a man or woman filled with warm clothing — zipped hooded sweatshirt, non-leather gloves, knit cap, warm socks, thermals. They are delivered to locations where homeless people gather, including food pantries, soup kitchens, temporary shelters and places where some sleep in the open in abandoned buildings, parks, and alleyways.

So far our club has donated 11 backpacks. If you want to donate go to www.operationchillout.org for the Online Winter Drive. When you make an online purchase, be sure to include our club name in the business line. Please email me what you donate so I can keep a total of our club donations for my yearly report.

Thank you for your continued support of our Special State Project.
