Plymouth Seeks Volunteers to Write Letters For Veterans
The city of Plymouth needs your help to write letters of thanks and appreciation to veterans. Veterans Day is less than a month away.
Participants can drop off letters and drawings by 4:30 p.m. on November 6 at the Plymouth City Hall. Letters will then be distributed to veterans during the Nov. 10 drive-through breakfast.
“There’s so many people who have family members who served in the military,” said Jackie Maas, the volunteer coordinator for Plymouth. “My father served in WWII in the army. My nephew was in the Navy and my son is currently a cadet at the Air Force Academy. So Veterans Day is really personal. We want to make sure our veterans understand they are appreciated and we are so grateful for their service.”
Writing letters to veterans is a safe way for kids and families to volunteer but Maas added that it’s also an opportunity for kids to learn about caring for others.
Veterans will have to register online if they plan on coming to the drive-through breakfast event.
