San Angelo's United Way Launches "Operation Hope Delivered"
SAN ANGELO, TX – The United Way of the Concho Valley is hoping to make a difference in the lives of former military members. When veterans leave a shelter or transitional housing and move to a permanent residence they often don’t have the basic household items needed to set up their new homes. This year’s Day of Caring theme will be "Operation Hope Delivered." It is scheduled for Friday, May 10 and sponsored by H-E-B.
The United Way is soliciting help from the community in gathering new household and personal items which will be placed in baskets and delivered to local veterans beginning May 17. A list of items that will be accepted can be found on the United Way of the Concho Valley’s website.
Collection points will be in numerous businesses and companies throughout the Concho Valley. A list of locations will be posted on the United Way of the Concho Valley’s website.
Donations of items or cash to purchase supplies may be brought to the United Way office at 955 Turner Street, San Angelo, Texas 76904 anytime before May 10. Checks should be made payable to the United Way of the Concho Valley’s Day of Caring Project.
Just thanking a veteran can go a long way, but an act of kindness means even more. For more information please call the United Way of the Concho Valley at (325) 949-3716.
