This wonderful service project was brought to us Monday evening by Rotarian Dora Vasquez-Hellner.  She said, "The veterans at the RI Veterans Home in Bristol have been isolated from friends and family since approximately March 12, 2020 due to the Covid Quarantine.  Morale is exceptionally low.  Many veteran's groups have requested permission to hold a 'gratitude parade' of decorated vehicles circling the Vet Home property but were denied for various reasons.  The residents have been in lock-down with the closing of their barber shop, their mini-mart, their cafeteria, their pool table and no visitors." 
However, vets may receive packages sent through UPS, USPS and FEDEX; so Dora is asking everyone to jin her in putting together a "mail bag" of cards and letters for our veterans living there.  Simply write a note or two or three  - address your envelope to "Any Veteran", 786 Church Avenue, Warwick RI 02889. 
Please don't hesitate to pass this on to others in your circle of family and friends.  Help Dora to cheer up our Veterans and spread some joy and happiness!!!!
