PAGE 2-A HOGANSVIIA HERALD - THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2017 Sought ear Editor: For Veterans ' There are Veterans in need of your help and we are try- ing to help them through a program called Operation Blankets of Blessings. : During this holiday season, please remember our Veterans. My husband is a disabled Veteran that is now home- bound. He has multiple appointments at the Tuskegee Veterans Hospital. : We checked with the nursing home to see what our Veterans were in need of. I was told they did not provide them with toiletry items, undergarments, socks and blan- :.1 ets. I thought how great it would be for each Veteran to receive :a blanket for their bed this Christmas! : They have about 80 patients who have blessed us with our freedom. Let's bless them with comfort! " If you would like to donate a new blanket you can mail a blanket or donation to us at Operation Blankets of Blessings, c/o Bethany and Travis Gallion, 83 Wagon Wheel Drive, Ellerslie, GA 31807 or you may drop off blankets at The i Manchester Star-Mercury located at 3051 Roosevelt Highway in Manchester if you reside in MeriWether County. : Our goal is to have the blankets wrapped and delivered :to the Veterans by Dec. 15. Your help would be greatly appre- ciated. Let's give back to those who gave so much for us. Sincerely, Bethany Gallion Ellerslie, Ga. Jeanette D.
