Over the course
of the last year, the PVI Library was able to collect over 200 food and from
generous students and staff members. Some of these items went to fill over 85 holiday baskets for veteran
families at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Paul’s House, located in Jonas
at the site of the old Jonas Hotel, is a temporary sanctuary for homeless
veterans operated by the Valor Clinic Foundation.
If you wish to donate,
you may drop items off to the library at any time. While pop-top
cans of beef stew and other
meals are the most in need, here are some other items in low supply at Paul’s
House: tuna pouches, individual juice cans, and peanut butter.
Holiday foods needed
include non-perishable boxed pie crust
and boxes or bags of brown rice. Both
Paul’s House and Valor Clinic can be found on Facebook for
further information. Their website can be found at www.valorclinic.org.
Thank you all for your generosity! All donations are
very much appreciated!
