Nursing Home Resident Gets His Wish Granted

New Castle News  Nursing Home Resident Gets His Wish Granted” October 11, 2018

Delaware Valley Veterans Home, Philadelphia, Pa

Help us brighten the holidays for local elderly veterans at the Delaware Valley Veterans Home in Philadelphia. These men are in need of new personal electric razors with a storage case. Although they do get some electric razors donated, they are often cheap and break easily. They sometimes shave them with regular disposable razors, but the men have thin skin and get cut easily.  Each of the 130 residents would love their own razor as it is not sanitary to share them. Our goal is to raise $50 per razor and to present these gift to the men during a holiday celebration. Your donation of $50 will provide a much-needed item to a deserving veteran and will show them that we remember and thank them for their service.
