With Thanksgiving. Coats for our Veterans.
This past weekend I finally met up with Louis Baca. My daughter Stacey and I had been out to Old Navy. They had ALL winter coats 50% off.
Louis Baca is the Geneva Financial Rep for the DFW area. Genevafi.com/dfw
Louis supports veterans and helps with finding homes, collecting supplies and coats, backpacks, food etc. Stacey and I hit Old Navy and we were the first to be buying coats and found some incredible ones to purchase. We outfitted with new coats 9 veterans, with hats, gloves, scarves, coats and more. Both of us had gently used coats and we collected those from neighbors and friends, along with hats and scarves and gloves... and Terry and I drove to meet Louis in Dallas last Friday. It was amazing. I do not have time to load the film Terry took, but this was the picture of the two of us.
Give thanks today... not only for family and friends, but for our military active and retired, and remember them this day and in the coming season ahead. Many are alone, homeless, aching from life itself, but they chose to give up everything to defend our country and serve each and every one of us. It is time we remember to serve them and give back what we can.
Every year at this time our family does the angel tree at church and we love buying the wish list for those children. These veterans, many are homeless, or living day to day. Perhaps this year you might do more than just an angel on the tree... find your local veteran's help group and see what they need.
Happy Thanksgiving... blessings from our home to your heart. Thank you Louis Baca for inspiring our families to actively be apart of this season.
"All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God." 2 Corinthians 4:15
