Some of the donated items include toiletries, books and homemade quilts.

The items will be used for veterans who stay at the hospital, and who make trips to the VA Hospital in Pittsburgh.

“Everyone in CEOS, and I’ve said this before, kind of, puts their community first, and they band together and really give back to their community, especially in a global pandemic,” said Ric Rodriguez, Extension Agent for Family and Community Development for the CEOS.

The CEOS takes donations year round for veterans. If you’d like to donate, you can call the extension office at (304) 624-8650.
