Shave & Haircut for Veterans on Memorial Day
The Mission Committee asked for your support with our “shave and haircut” project and your response was generous and sincerely appreciated. Many organizations provide meals and clothing, but often personal appearance becomes a vital part of one’s outlook on life. We wanted to aid veterans with having the means to accomplish that goal. With the assistance of an active American Legion in Kearny who see veterans on a daily basis, this collection provided haircuts and other hygiene items to help the veterans returning to civilian life, seeking employment, aging veterans on fixed incomes, and those who find themselves homeless.
We want to thank the Sunday school children for their beautiful cards and thoughtful messages to our veterans for Memorial Day. Eight delightful girls with wonderful smiles and lots of enthusiasm from our Sunday school helped collect your gifts at the doors with patriotic red, white and blue baskets. We thank them for their participation in honoring our veterans.
