One Good Turn ….

2015-08-20_13-30-55Harrison FYI presents this “Harrison adjacent-town post” and hopes you consider donating to this good cause.

A recent ribbon cutting ceremony was held for the Grand Opening of the Veterans Clothing Closet located on the upper level of the American Legion Post 99, 314 Belgrove Drive, Kearny, NJ.

At the Veterans Clothing Closet, donated clothing is displayed and made available for no cost to veterans.  This collaboration, among American Legion Post 99 and Catholic Charities, is designed to improve the lives of veterans and assist the people who have sacrificed in service to the nation.

The Veterans Clothing Closet is dedicated to helping veterans build better lives for themselves and their families and promoting independence among veterans by providing professional attire.  The location will also offer a network of support tools to help veterans thrive in work and in life, with the purpose of empowering and inspiring veterans in the community.

All clothing donations are made via appointment. Veterans must also make an appointment through Catholic Charities, not the Post, in order to visit the Closet, since it is staffed by volunteers. (Don’t worry. They’ll find time for you.)

Personal hygiene products and small household items also can be donated.

To make donations, or schedule a visit, contact Carl Perry at 973-592-1393 or email cperry@catholicharities.org.
