To make the holiday season brighter for the residents of the New Jersey Veterans Memorial Home in Vineland, the members of VFW Post 1963’s Auxiliary are collecting gifts that they will personally deliver to the Memorial Home during Post 1963’s annual “Christmas Caravan” on December 8.

To ensure that the Christmas Caravan is a success – and the veterans will receive a variety of gifts – the Auxiliary is asking the public to donate pre-packaged snacks, arts-and-crafts supplies, adult coloring books, jigsaw puzzles, comfortable loungewear, bedroom slippers, socks, pajamas, toiletries, batteries, and other items that are appropriate for residents of a retirement home.

All donations must be delivered by November 27 to Post 1973, which is located at 301 JFK Boulevard, Sea Isle City, NJ, 08243.

To make the shopping process easier for those making donations, a special Amazon Account has been created that will allow shoppers to ship their purchases directly to VFW Post 1963.

For more information about this year’s Christmas Caravan to the New Jersey Veterans Memorial Home in Vineland, please email or phone 609-922-3383.
