Backpacks for Homeless Vets

American Legion Post 57 is working to fill at least ten backpacks for homeless veterans in our region. Any donation of a traditional back pack would be welcome. The homeless vets frequently carry their belongings in back packs.

Other items requested for insertion in the packs are:

  • Long Johns / Flannel shirts / Heavy socks / Gloves
  • Hoodies / Sweatpants / Sweatshirts /Warm hats / Scarves
  • Small toiletry items like shampoo, body wash, soaps, lotions, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs,etc
  • Gently-used coats, shoes, boots.

Many people have some of these items in good condition that they received as gifts over the years and seldom, if ever, used.

They can be dropped off at Post 57, 46 Franklin Turnpike in Waldwick or you can call me directly (201) 783-2856 and I will arrange for pickup.  At the end of October, we fill up the bags with the goods collected and distribute them to homeless veterans in the area with the assistance of the Division of Veterans Affairs.

I sincerely thank you for your support.

John Vervoort
