MONT./WOODRIDGE — The Monticello and Woodridge Kiwanis Clubs got together once more for a joint venture to honor local veterans by presenting the Sullivan County Veterans Service Agency with little gifts and greeting cards, many which were hand-made by the Kiwanis service leadership clubs, consisting of the high school Key Clubs, Middle School Builders Clubs and the Aktion Club of Sullivan County.
The Aktion Club is sponsored by Monticello and Woodridge Kiwanis and it is comprised of members with various disabilities from the Arc of Greater Hudson Valley, the Center for Discovery and New Hope Community. Woodridge Kiwanian Jill Weiner’s Liberty Middle School students also donated their artistic talents to this project.
The gifts and cards will be distributed to local veterans, including homeless individuals served by the Veterans Agency, and patients at the local nursing homes and hospitals as well as Castle Point and Albany Veterans Hospital. The items consist of personal toiletry, body lotion, razors, socks, underwear, t-shirts, detergent, crossword and find the word puzzles, playing cards, scarves, hats, gloves, etc. Veterans Service Director Stephen Walsh stated that the Veterans will be so thrilled to receive the cards and gifts and know they are remembered by our community, including the younger people who did such a wonderful job with designing and writing their own personalized cards.
