| In a holiday effort to thank the men and women who have served our country, U.S. Family Health Plan is hosting a collection drive that will benefit homeless veterans.|
Through Nov. 21, Riverbend Medical Group offices in Agawam, Chicopee and Springfield are participating in U.S. Family Health Plan's campaign to collect personal care products, calling cards, books and new clothing that will be distributed to New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans this December. U.S. Family Health Plan staff will bring the unwrapped items to NESHV on Dec. 5 when they participate in a community service project to serve meals to vets and trim trees at the shelter.
NESHV assists homeless men and women veterans with addictions, trauma, mental illness and unemployment who commit themselves to making changes in their lives through sobriety, non-violence, education and employment.
Members of the public can drop-off the following new items:
Men's T-shirts, underwear and socks for men sizes 32 - 48
Toiletries, including razors, deodorants, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shower gels and shampoo
Gift certificates to supermarkets, CVS and Dunkin Donuts.
