Another successful drive to aid vets

Posted on: Dec 6, 2022

The eighth annual clothing drive for veterans was a success.

The effort by school staff and families netted 350 new clothing items, and monetary donations were used to purchase winter boots for 10 female veterans who are undergoing treatment at the Eagles Healing Nest. The boots were purchased at the request of that facility’s director.

“On behalf of Delano Schools, I would like to thank the Delano community and staff for your continued support of our Annual New Clothing Drive,” said drive coordinator Ginny Schuelke. “Thanks to your generosity, we will be supporting male and female veterans undergoing treatment and healing at the Eagles Healing Nest, as well as veterans receiving treatment at the St. Cloud and Minneapolis VA Hospitals. Donations will be delivered over the next two weeks.”
