The Henderson War Memorial Foundation, Henderson, Kentucky is seeking monetary donations to provide Christmas gifts for all of the Veterans who live at the Western Kentucky Veterans Center in Hanson, Kentucky. This 156 bed facility provides long-term skilled nursing and rehabilitation for Kentucky’s Veterans. With your help, we will provide gifts for all the residents currently living at the Center.
Last year we distributed gifts and visited with all 96 Veterans who were in residence at the time. This year we have 91 Veterans at the facility. Gifts will include gloves, shirts, personal toiletry items, snacks, and soft drinks. In addition, the Foundation will purchase a jukebox for the Veterans’ Recreational Room filled with music from the era in which they served. The idea behind the Christmas giving is to honor the Veterans and let them know that they are remembered and appreciated at this special time of year and that their service and sacrifice to our nation are not forgotten.
Donations are easy to make by visiting our website at http://hendersonwarmemorial.org/, scrolling to the bottom of the home page, and clicking the “Donate Now” button. You will be taken to a page where you can securely make your tax deductible donation. Or, you can send your donation by check to the Henderson War Memorial Foundation, 300 First Street, Henderson, KY 42420.
Won’t you consider a $50 (or other) donation to this worthy cause? The Father of our Country, George Washington, said “The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by our nation.”
Thank you for helping to make this Christmas for Veterans a reality.
