HARTFORD – State Rep. Pamela Sawyer participated in the Help A Hero event to benefit homeless veterans outside the Capitol Building on Wednesday, May 22nd.
Rep. Sawyer said, “Our military veterans have sacrificed a great deal to defend the freedoms we all enjoy on a daily basis, including the right to a representative government in our State Capitol. It is only fitting that in the final days before we observe Memorial Day, honoring our veterans, we should ask legislators and staff to donate a few personal care and clothing items to benefit veterans in need.”
Items that were donated include health care and hygiene items for men & women, tooth brushes, tooth paste, shampoo, soap, deodorant, grooming kits, personal care items for men & women, socks, underwear, t-shirts, hats, gloves, boots, umbrellas etc. Gift cards and cash donations will be accepted for veterans in need of work clothes and other non-donated items.
