Raising Money for Holiday Meals for Needy Veterans

With heartfelt thanks to Nick Angelakis, owner of the Colonial Farms Gourmet Food Market in Washington Crossing,

the Club was able to solicit funds for holiday meals for need veterans. 

Despite some very overcast and chilly weather, Irv Perlstein, Syd Baron, Alan Agree and Dick Newbert were able to raise $800 in just six hours.

The monies were then used to purchase gift certificates from Colonial Farms which will be distributed to several area veterans' organizations which will, in turn, donate them directly to veterans whom they know to have fallen on difficult financial times and for whom these gift certificates might make the upcoming Christmas/Hanukkah holidays a bit brighter.

A special thanks also needs to be extended to the incredibly generous customers of Colonial Farms, including one individual who left a $100 bill in the collection jar.
