Agawam’s Clerical Union members are collecting donations of personal care items, including warm clothing, for Holyoke Soldiers Home residents.
The drive is already yielding good results from Agawam residents. Donation boxes are located at the Town Hall, the Agawam Town Library, and the Agawam Department of Public Works.
“It was an overwhelming choice for us this year to choose the Soldiers Home,” said Melissa Brooks, treasurer of Agawam Clerical Union. “What a great opportunity to supply the basic needs to someone whose given so much to us.”
The collection of clothing and other personal items will continue through December 17.
