Veterans' Service Office gets a special donation

Thank you to Kylie Duhamel, a student at Allendale Elementary, for contributing to the Veterans' Service Office holiday care packages effort. Kylie's contribution is part of her 5th-grade class's “Giving Project.”

The Veterans' Service Office will be distributing care packages to approximately 140 veterans during the week of Dec. 16, thanks to donations submitted by city employees and others like Kylie. The packages will include socks, toiletries, and winter accessories.

The December distribution comes in the wake of the office’s Thanksgiving care package campaign, which provided veterans with an assortment of food items.
