When Anabelle thought of what kind of community service project she would like to do, she immediately thought of her grandfather and other veterans that served our country. “Even though our Veterans are recognized, we can always do more. My grandfather served in Vietnam and it is important to do what we can for those men and women who, like him, served our Country,” says Anabelle.
Anabelle decided to put together “Blessing Bags” and deliver them to Castle Point V.A. Hospital. As an employee of Adam Fairacre Farms, she placed a box for donations in the store as well as allowing customers to give monetary donations at checkout.
Raising $1,700 in donations, Anabelle was able to put together 100 bags of toiletries and other necessities, 50 for men and 50 for women. On December 12th, she delivered them to Castle Point.
Anabelle remarked that “I had fun with this project and would like to continue it year after year.”
