    American Legion Auxiliary, Post 90 in Statesboro and Woodmen of the World, Chapter 158, joined with Alpha Delta Kappa, Honorary Teachers Sorority, to provide gifts to veterans at the VA Hospital in Dublin.
    Greg Rogers, recreational therapist at the VA Nursing Home attached to the Veterans Hospital, helped Charlotte Malott, Glenda Antuna and Carol Cogell deliver over 100 gift bags to the patients.  The bags included personal care items, puzzles, pens, diabetic socks, flags, etc. and a personal hand written thank-you note to each patient. They hope to return for Christmas in July, which is a slow season of giving at the hospital.  Phone cards were requested for the next visit.
    Sponsorship for this project was partially provided by Thriven Financial through St. Paul's Lutheran Church and Southeastern Trade & Auction Co.
    If you would like to participate in the program for Christmas in July, please contact Charlotte Malott at (912) 237-2628.  Charlotte says joining together enables us to do more.  The group welcomes help of time, money or gifts.   Individuals and organizations are welcome to join their efforts to help bring gifts to the VA Hospital in Dublin.
