Dan Dunaway, our veterans services specialist at our Hamilton location, is ushering in the holiday spirit with his “giving tree” he has set up near the entrance to the center. Several families filled out wish lists and Dunaway’s “elves” are now busy fulfilling those wishes.
A festive tablecloth, holiday candy and fresh cookies are also there to greet veterans who come through the door. The place feels a little more like home and puts people coming in for help at ease immediately.
A few weeks ago, Dunaway solicited wishes from the children of several of our families in need and hung them on the tree. Volunteers from the local community are now making sure our families have presents under their trees on Christmas Day.
Little touches from people who truly care are what makes the holidays special. Many thanks go out to Dunaway and his generous volunteers. Happy holidays!
