Read this nice write up by Barbara Bedell in today's Sunday Times Herald-Record on our efforts to donate clothing and much needed items to our Veterans at Montrose
"Winter coats and warm outerwear in excellent condition are sought throughout the region at nonprofits where programs are conducted for people who need a helping hand. At the Montrose Veterans Administration there’s a “cupboard” of clothing that is free for veterans. Contributing annually is Colin J. Schmitt, formerly of Montgomery, who urges others to help.
Schmitt said adult coloring books and game books like sudoku are heavily in demand. Also welcome are humorous video tapes and movies.
The Lions and Kiwanis in Middletown work with the American Legion on Wawayanda Avenue to collect clothing for veterans. Donations can be left at the American Legion.
The Warming Station in Middletown welcomes winter coats for the homeless. The Rev. Peter Rustico of St. John’s Lutheran Church (342-1963) is president of the Interfaith Council that sponsors the Warming Station located in St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, opposite the Middletown Police Department."
