This week, several community members stepped forward to donate food and gifts so that we could help some military veterans and their families that were in need. Thanks to the very generous donations of these Bedford Twp. Community members, collectively, we were able to supply 3 families with gifts to their children, and extra food including meat, fresh fruits and vegetables, and non-perishable food.
In addition, we were able to provide 16 Veteran families with food boxes that included meat, fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as milk and other food items. We accepted this surprise early this afternoon and were able to distribute everything within a few hours.
Folks, the Veterans Center is not even open yet and we rose to the challenge, just as each of our hometown heroes have for our country. The need is great but the hearts in our community is even greater!
The Bedford Twp. Veterans team wants to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our community for allowing us to serve our Vets and wishes each of you a very Merry Christmas and blessed Holiday.
