Operation Gift A Vet
Giving Tuesday Charity For Veterans
After Robert Retired from 30 Years USAF he still wanted to serve.
It was getting close to the Holidays and He thought why not a stocking?
We gathered 28 stockings the first year and gave them to some veterans. Wow did they love that!
Now 4 Years later we are delivering 800 to Manteno a local Veterans Hospital and Home.. and our Local Veterans here in homes and facilities in our local community.
Each stocking has a tee shirt white, Crew Socks white, toiletries and a beanie baby.. Tooth brushes and Paste...
Why a beanie baby?
Its comfortable for the neck wrist behind a knee and it pus a smile on thier faces.. you get the Pic..
We send stockings to our local Homeless shelter as well...
with candy toys and tee shirts and lotions etc...
We love giving back
All the items have been donated Yet at times we run short
This is a time of reflection and giving
If you feel inclined to give to assist a Veteran Please do
We are a 501c3 and we honor your gifts and prayers for all our Veterans
