Support a Veteran with a Brown Bag Lunch
Brown bag lunches are needed for the Hospice Department at the local veterans affairs (VA) hospital for family members who cannot leave their loved ones during
that difficult time. In addition, veterans traveling on the service bus to
Pittsburgh for medical procedures also are in need of bag lunches.
