Blue-Gray Chapter 628 of Princeton, WV helped sponsor a canned food drive at local schools in Virginia and West Virginia benefiting the outreach activities of Bluefield Union Mission.
Bluefield Union Mission is a not for profit, full-service Mission that provides physical, social, and spiritual support to citizens in the two Virginias.
Chapter 628’s monetary donation joined that of other local veteran groups including Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, the Marine Corps League, and the Princeton Veterans Center.
The groups of veterans gathered 3,672 nonperishable goods from six schools and presented checks totaling over $4,000 to the Mission.
One of the participating schools invited the veterans for lunch and presented tokens of appreciation during a school assembly.
