Thank You
The staff of the Highland Library and the Huron Valley AMVETS Post 2006 thank you for your generous donations to homeless veterans. With your help, we collected 15 boxes, filled with toiletries, blankets, hats & gloves, socks, etc. We sincerely hope that these donations may, in some small way, let them know that we honor their service to our country and we also hope that they find peace and normalcy in their lives.
