We met this month at the Veterans Northeast Outreach Center in Haverhill to create holiday gift bags for 58 veterans. Thank you to all the chapter members who donated items. The gift bags included toiletries, hats, gloves, socks, candy, snacks, books, puzzles, and other small gift items,. Each veterans also received a gift card to Market Basket.
In the past, the CAR has provided holiday cards for veterans, and may do so again this year, but if you are looking for a fun activity with your children or grandchildren, they can make cards for the veterans as well.
During the meeting we had the opportunity to swear in our newest member, Sheri Larsen from Newburyport.
