August kicked off our Autumn Service Project. In the past, VCRTA had always collected school supplies for local elementary schools. This year, VCRTA decided to collect school supplies for a local middle school, Woodrow Wilson Middle School. In addition to a full table of school supplies, VCRTA members donated $90 to Woodrow Wilson for the purchase of additional school supplies that might be needed for their students.
VCRTA also kicked off a new service project. Following the experiences of a few members who underwent days of worrying about loved ones in local hospital intensive care units (ICUs), members donated magazines that will be distributed to the Union Hospital and Regional Hospital ICUs. This new service project will be an ongoing as we collect magazines at luncheons for the foreseeable future.
