Friends of the Soldiers Home for the second year was proud to arrange a holiday card drop by the DC Homeschool Cooperative on Thursday, December 19th, at the Armed Forces Retirement Home.
Children excitedly presented cards that they made directly to veterans who received them with a smile.
The youth group at Holy Cross Parish in Garrett Park, Md., also made holiday cards for veterans at the Soldiers Home that Friends were able to deliver as well..
We thank the DC Homeschool Cooperative and Holy Cross, and above all we thank the veterans of the Home for all the sacrifices they have made!
This was the 40th and final volunteer activity by Friends of the Soldiers Home in 2013. We want to thank the residents, the staff and community volunteers who made all our successes in 2013 possible. We wish everyone the best this holiday season, and we can’t wait to be back in action in 2014! We in particular wish a happy holiday season to our veteran friends, who deserve nothing but the best.
