Gifts for veterans

Updated:

WARREN, Ohio – Once again this year, the drive is on to collect gifts for our military veterans who are in hospitals or nursing homes.

On the day after Thanksgiving, donations of clothing, personal hygiene products and items for recreation and entertainment can be dropped off at Packard Music Hall in Warren between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Warren Councilman Bob Dean says the gifts will be delivered to vets at two Ohio military hospitals.

"These folks are now in their 70s and 80s and their health is failing, and they're still tough, but they are happy to see us every time we roll up the driveway" Dean said.

He added that many of the veterans no longer have any family to visit them.
