Hi Everyone:

Boy, this sure has been a crazy busy month. Lois and Joanie represented Sgt. P’s Lapghans at the Freeport Stand Down and presented 28 lapghans. On October 14th., we had our Oktoberfest Fundraiser Event. We don’t have the final numbers yet but know by the turnout that it was a success! Thank you to all of my volunteers for all of their help. You don’t know how much I appreciate it. Also, the Ross -Pearson VFW Post 5159 in Rockford did a fundraiser for our organization on the same day and that was very successful. Once again, thank you to Bob and Tim, John Guler and all the volunteers that made the Freedom Feud a success. Today, we participated in the Rockford Stand Down and presented 88 lapghans, 42 scarves, 55 hats/ski masks, and 1 pillow. At one point, there were over 160 homeless and less fortunate veterans that came thru the door. We do not have the final number of veterans yet; but we will keep you posted. Please feel free to scroll down and see a couple pictures that were taken at the Stand Down today. I want to thank everyone who had helped us these past few months with their donations. Your donations are helping us fulfill our mission of, WRAPPING OUR VETERANS IN COMFORT AND WARMTH WITH LAPGHANS MADE FROM LOVE AND GRATITUDE FOR THEIR SACRIFICE AND SERVICE.
