Camden - Kings Bay Council Spreads Holiday Cheer at Lake City (FL) VA Medical Center
Seven members of the Camden - Kings Bay Navy League Council traveled to Lake City, FL, on December 10th to deliver a record load of donated personal care and entertainment items and spend time with hospitalized veterans.
Shown in the above photo are Stevie Obee, Porter Johns, Barbara Johns, Jerry O'Donoughue, Cheryl Aston (program coordinator), Greg Glaz, and Dave Burch, along with VAMC staff members.
Our Council makes this trip twice a year to thank hospitalized veterans for their service and make sure they know we are all greatful for their sacrifices. More than $1,000 was contributed by Council members to supplement donations of shampoo, deodorant, body wash, razors and shaving cream, coffee, books, decks of cards, and laundry detergent. We also presented a wreath, as part of the Wreaths Across America program, which the VAMC will display at their front entrance on December 13th, which is national Wreaths Across America Day.
