Louisville VA Medical Center
Message to the Community
On behalf of the Veterans treated at Robley Rex VA Medical Center, we would like to express our gratitude to this wonderful community for your outpouring of generosity, especially during the holiday season! YOU ROCK!
Our phenomenal community partners include individuals, businesses, employee groups, civic and faith-based groups, and Veterans Service Organizations. During the months of November and December, you provided support to our Veterans by donating gift cards, household items, clothing, toys, gifts, stockings, care packages, and thousands of holiday cards.
Thanks to your caring, more than 129 homeless Veterans’ Christmas will be much brighter! Each Veteran received a holiday box containing a coat, sweater, shirt, pants, socks, underwear, hat, gloves, boots and handmade Christmas cards. But our commitment to our Veterans doesn’t stop there.
More than thirty Veteran families have also been adopted, including approximately 70 children. (These families were adopted after being referred by their social worker). You provided much needed household items such as bedding, kitchen items and cleaning supplies to Veterans in transition from homelessness to permanent housing. Donated gift cards provided much needed assistance to Veterans in a time of crisis.
One Veteran who received a gift card wrote a note addresses “Dear Community” which expressed her gratitude “to have people care and love us that don’t know us.” She said that the Walmart gift card allowed her to purchase food and gas for her family “during a terrible time.”
Thank you for your ongoing support of our nation’s heroes! For information on donations to Robley Rex VA Medical Center, contact Voluntary Service at 502-287-6221,email@example.com, or visit http://www.louisville.va.gov/giving/index.asp.
