Can You Help Collect Items for Troops This Weekend in Redmond?

Here’s an earlier feature about the .

This weekend the volunteers are collecting items at the store at the following times:

•Friday 5 p.m.-8 p.m.

•Saturday 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 2 p.m.-5 p.m.

•Sunday 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 2 p.m.-5 p.m.

They are very short of volunteers for the afternoon shifts on both Saturday and Sunday.

If you have time to assist with the collections this weekend, please contact John Kenny, who runs the local VFW Troop Support Program, at Kjjkenny@aol.com
