Give Where You Live Deerfield:

Participate in a Day of Service for Veterans Day!

 

 

The Village of Deerfield and the American Legion Deerfield Post 738 invites everyone to participate in the Give Where You Live Deerfield service campaign to make a difference in the lives of area veterans, starting now and continuing through Monday, November 11th, 2019. 

 

Spearheaded by Deerfield Mayor Harriet Rosenthal, Give Where You Live Deerfield, day of service, will occur on the Monday after Veteran's Day, when volunteers will come together to make fleece blankets, assemble care packages, write letters of thanks and encouragement, and make cards for our Veterans: at the Deerfield Village Hall, 850 Waukegan Road, from Noon to 2pm.    

 

 

Everyone can help, starting now, by donating:

 

· Non-perishable food

· Clothing, small appliances and household items

· Sweat suits, socks and underwear

· Toiletries

· Gift cards to popular chain restaurants, such as McDonalds, Subway and Dunkin' Donuts

· Monetary donations

 

 

These donations are earmarked for the following organizations: Midwest Veteran's Closet (where Veterans can shop for free) in North Chicago, VA Federal Health Care Center in North Chicago, and COOL Ministries. Items can be delivered to the Deerfield Police Department, 850 Waukegan Road.

 

Mayor Rosenthal will host service activities from Noon to 2PM in the Deerfield Village Hall that are suitable for volunteers of all ages!  What a great way to teach your children what Veteran's Day is all about.
