Warrior House is an organization that benefits veterans and their families. It was started by reclaiming an abandoned property in Shelby in Orleans County and restoring the house to host disabled veterans for various hunts throughout the year. A few years ago, they expanded the program to assist local veteran families in need for the holidays as well. Their next event will be a Christmas offering through which the organization provides a Christmas meal and gifts for children to veteran families that did not have extra money to spend on Christmas. Last year they served 17 families at Christmas and would like to do more than that this year.
We will hold a toy drive for them this year as we did the last 2 years. If you can, donate a new unwrapped children’s toy no later than next Friday, December 7th. The drop box will be located outside of the foremen’s office. Sarah from Adecco – who is one of Warrior House’s volunteers — will pick up the box on the 7th.
