A non-profit group, the Bethel Women's Club, is looking for some help in bringing holiday cheer to area veterans. The annual gift drive is asking people to donate new and unopened items such as clothing, CDs, movies, batteries and other everyday items. Maggie Butler is one of the women leading the charge. She says some other items on their wish lists are slippers and puzzle books.
The drive runs through the 24th.
Items can be dropped off at First Congregational Church in Bethel or the Wells Fargo Bank in Bethel. Collection Bins and complete list of items needed are also located in Bethel at American Pride; English Apothecary; Bethel Mail Service ; True Value; First Congregational Church; St. Mary's Church; Stony Hill Wine & Spirits and UK Gourmet on Rt 6 in Newtown.
On November 16, a special STUFF-A-VAN event will take place at the Bethel United Methodist Church, Greenwood Avenue, during their spaghetti dinner starting at 5:30pm. Members of the Bethel Women’s Club will be on hand to accept cash donations and other items.
