District 1 (VAVS) Coats and Shoes Drive for Local Veterans

Now through November 30, 2020 - Drop-Off by VFW Post 3137 Front Door Entrance

VFW and VFW Auxiliary (VAVS) Representatives for Ralph H Johnson VA Medical Center are reaching out to to ask for your support concerning a priority unmet need of our Charleston area veterans. There is a need of Winter coats and shoes/boots for these veterans. It's a great opportunity for our Post Members to to help provide these essential clothing items for these veterans.

The coats and shoes/boots must be NEW and the sizes that are most needed are as follows: Coats (size large, extra large, and 2 extra large). Shoes (size 10-13, including half sizes. There will be very specific distribution of these items to the veterans managed by Ralph H Johnson VA Medical Center. 2020 has been a very difficult year so far. Helping to fulfill these unmet needs for these local veterans would be an a very positive step.

Donation: Electric Stair Lift

Do you have anyone who might need an electric stair lift?  A friend who is moving from her condo to a retirement home and no longer needs hers.  She is willing to donate it to anyone needing it.  It's the kind you sit in and ride up and down the stairs.  It currently spans 15 steps but that can be expanded/extended by purchasing additional rails.

Please contact David Sowers sds3239@comcast.net for more information!
