Clothes for vets

Seventy-five percent of all the homeless people in Augusta are our veteran heroes. Many came to Augusta for combat related injuries – physical and emotional. They found work and a place to stay near the VA hospital. This recession caused many of them to lose their jobs and then their dry place to sleep. Now they are tragically on the street. Cold weather is coming and these men and women heroes need warm clothes.

When you are changing out your summer to winter clothes, start a box for our veterans. If you didn’t wear that jacket last year, what makes you think you will wear it this year? Gloves, scarves, long coats, sweaters, hats, long sleeve blouses, t-shirts are needed for men and women. Write “Veterans” on your box and take it to the Master’s Closet on Peachtree Street in the old Jip’s Sit-a-Spell.

Clothes are taken to the Geriatric Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ward at the VA hospital about every two weeks.
