Framingham's Director of Veterans Services Thanks JCHE
Posted: February 28, 2017
This past January during Martin Luther King Jr. birthday week, JCHE’s Shillman House celebrated the spirit of service by holding a different charity event each day of the week to help improve our community.
For one of these events, we set up a collection box for white socks for homeless veterans. The importance of clean socks to proper foot care is often overlooked, and our residents were eager to donate to such a worthy cause.
And so we were all moved and humbled to receive an email from Peter Harvell, Framingham's Director of Veterans Services, thanking JCHE for our contribution, and letting us know that he will be sending the box to a soldier in Afghanistan!
We're proud to have played a small role in taking care of our servicemen and women, and we look forward to holding similar charity events in the future.
