Several members of Post 3452 assisted the Women’s Auxiliary in distributing hand made items to patients in the Portland VA Hospital on December 14th. Several members of the Women’s Auxiliary have spent months making carry bags, afghan blankets, and soap on a rope. They combined their handicraft with donated hats, sweatshirts, and comfort items to give to patients for a Christmas present. Patricia Modlin and Phyllis Houston are committed volunteers for the VAVS program. Lots of smiles and appreciation from those who received a bag.
