Over the past three weeks the Club has solicited monies to provide meals for needy veterans at Colonial Farms Gourmet Food Market in Washington Crossing, McCaffrey's Food Market in Lower Makefield/Yardley and ShopRite in Lower Makefield. The incredibly generous shoppers at those three super markets donated an amazing $2,800.
In each instance, the monies collected at each location were used to purchase gift certifiates from that store. These gift certificates have now been distributed to a variety of organizations which actiuvely work with and/or support veterans' causes and who have first-hand knowledge of veterans who are truly in need.
