Needs for Veterans' Care Packages

10/25/2016

Tennessee Fitness Spa will be making care packages this year for the Veterans at the TN State Veterans' Home in Murfreesboro. We would love to have all our guests participate by bringing (or mailing) small items such as comfy socks, travel size toiletries, or useful personal items like stamps and stationery. There are currently 12 women and 123 men at the home.

One night during the week of November 11th, we will decorate gift bags, sign cards, write poems, and prepare the boxes, so bring your creative ideas and stickers to the Care Package Party.

The Veteran's Home supplied us with the following list of the most requested items. Let's make some Veterans happy this November.
