Help our local homeless vets
The Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary are collecting items to fill laundry baskets for the Hud/Vash program at the Roseburg VA Hospital. The program assists homeless vets off the streets and into housing, starting them out with some household necessities. Large laundry baskets are needed and items for the following areas. Please note that some items listed must be “new,” in order to meet recent VA hospital directives.
Kitchen: four place settings — dishes, glasses; pots and pans — small and large skillets, sauce pans with lids; kitchen tool sets — measuring spoons and cups, liquid measuring cup, kitchen knives, can opener, potato peeler, salt and pepper shakers, timer, wall clock; new dish towels, hot pads and dish cloths.
Bathroom: soap dish and toothbrush holder, shower curtain and hooks, toilet brush and holder; new bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths and bath mats.
Bedroom: alarm clocks, plastic clothes hangers (six per basket); new bed pillow, pillowcase, afghan and lap blanket.
