Busy weekend at SAG

We're all packed up and ready for the upcoming move!

Fortunately we had lots of help. Volunteers Jessica, Eric, and Dan were on hand, but the biggest contributor was Dorothy, shown here. Dorothy's a long-time donor to SAG and spent four days of her European vacation with us.

Everything must go! Dorothy also filled about 50 backpacks - using many of the items provided through Leslie's supply drive - for distribution at Landstuhl hospital. SGT Brown, Casualty Liaison for the 1st Cav, poses in the background.

Soldiers' Angels Germany has been supporting the Landstuhl Med Hold unit since 2004 and has been located directly within the facility since 2005.

Landstuhl ICU nurse accepts a quilt made by one of Dorothy's fellow members of the North Ft Myers Elks. The Elks Veterans Committee is very active in local community services including support of the Bay Pines VA medical center as well as providing hot meals, clothing, and personal items to homeless veterans. In addition, Dorothy volunteers two days a week driving local veterans to appointments at the "nearest" VA hospital which is several hours away.

It was great having you here, Dorothy! When are you coming back? ;-)
