Operation Sweaters for Veterans begins
Oct. 30, 2012 — On Nov. 11, Americans throughout the world will commemorate Veterans Day to thank our nation’s veterans for service given and sacrifices made to protect the freedoms of this nation. In conjunction with more than 1,000 Veterans and Family Memorial Care (VFMC) providers nationwide, Walton’s Funerals and Cremations is sponsoring the VFMC Operation Sweaters for Veterans initiative throughout Northern Nevada and Susanville.
From Nov. 1 through Nov. 11 Walton’s is collecting new or gently used sweaters and gloves, which will be delivered to local VA hospitals, VA homes and veterans service organizations.
“This is just one small way we can support our heroes, and we’re honored to do our part,” said Tammy Dermody, owner of Walton’s.
Gently used sweaters can be dropped off at any Walton’s location:
In addition, Walton’s is the Official Cell Phones for Soldiers drop off center. People are invited to bring in their old cell phones to recycle and convert into one hour of free talk time for our heroes overseas. Everyone in the community is invited to support our veterans and military heroes by donating sweaters, gloves and old cell phones at Walton’s.
Walton’s has been Nevada’s trusted source for funeral services for more than 50 years. For more information, visit waltonsfuneralhomes.com.
