Fisher House-Essential Kits 2021
On May 28, 2021 Carol Baker, Ivory Gwin and Sandra Franklin delivered “Essential Kits” to Fisher House located in Hines, IL. Fisher House is a temporary living facility for families of Veterans who are currently in the Hines VA Hospital. These families come from different states and Fisher House allows them to stay in the House so they can be close to their loved one. Fran Powers was one of the Project Leads for this virtual project. Fran along with her family, and 20 other AT&T Pioneers (both Active and Retired) volunteers, put together at least 5 essential kits each that included the following items: Toothpaste, Toothbrush, Dental Floss, Comb, Brush, Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, Lotion, chewing gum, snacks, ink pen and a Word Search or Crossword Puzzle. AT&T VOLUNTEERS we SALUTE YOU! Thanks for taking time to virtually volunteer your time to do this project and show love to our Veterans. The manager at Fisher House was so surprised at the items in the bags and overly grateful for the 107 bags we delivered.
