Collection Drive to Honor Memorial Day

May 1 – May 29, 2024

We will collect new household items for Veterans Exiting Homelessness. VEH seeks to provide new move‐in‐essentials to veterans as they transition to permanent housing.

Throughout the month of May, First Pres will again host a drive to collect NEW move-in essentials for veterans transitioning to permanent housing. Beginning May 1, there will be an information table in the Narthex where you can pick-up a list of needed items, drop off donations and get more information. Donated items can also be dropped off during the week in the church office and in the Parlor during the Memorial Day Parade on May 27. The Veterans Exiting Homelessness Program is a collaborative effort between Military Outreach USA and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Below is a list of needed supplies. Questions?
