This October, the Winnetka Northfield Rotary Club is working with the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution to help veterans at the Lovell Federal Health Care Center. Each of these veterans has been honorably discharged, but due to a variety of circumstances they are in need of our help. These men and women recovering from Traumatic Brain Injuries or are in the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program and are dealing with lives that are hard for us to fathom. They receive support with housing and food, but cleaning supplies and other household items are not able to be purchased with their food cards.
The following items are of great need to these veterans:
Laundry detergent
Garbage bags
Garbage cans
Laundry basket
Toilet paper
Paper towels
Cleaning products
Brooms/dust pans
Cooking pans and utensils
Movie theater tickets
Restaurant gift cards
Items can be brought to our Thursday meetings or dropped off at the Winnetka Youth Organization (lower level of the Community House) during their open hours. Cash donations are also accepted.
