Appreciation for all who donated items

To the editor:

We wish to thank everyone who donated to the York County Democratic Committee’s clothing drive to help homeless men and women veterans.

We started our drive March 2 at our 27 Democratic caucuses held throughout York County. Attendees donated new/ like-new coats, jackets, scarves, gloves, thermal shirts, flannel shirts, socks and pants.

We continued our drive at our recent St. Patrick’s Day party at the Sanford VFW and folks again responded very generously.

Congressman Mike Michaud and U.S. Senate candidate Shenna Bellows addressed our group and discussed the need for caring for our veterans.

We wish to give a special thank you to John Flagler, veterans activist from Alfred, the Sanford VFW and the Veterans Surplus Clothing Program for distributing the clothing directly to veterans.

The drive is further proof that Mainers step up and care for our veterans in need.

Diane M Denk, chairman
York County Democratic Committee
