WSNV (Mix 93.5), an iHeartMedia radio station, the Salem Red Sox and Buffalo Wild Wings (Roanoke) are teaming up this holiday season to help and spread cheer to area veterans in need with ARCH supported Trust House.
The Salem Red Sox has donated more than 200 red stockings which will be stuffed with the items donated. Donation boxes are set up at both Buffalo Wild Wings in Roanoke: Starkey Road near Tanglewood Mall and at Valley View Mall. Donation boxes can also be found at the front offices of the Salem Red Sox. The collection drive is active until December 11, 2018.
Many veterans find themselves homeless or in need of assistance. Trust House helps veterans find housing and provides therapeutic case management for these men and women through ARCH.
ARCH (Advocate/Rebuild/Change/Heal) provides safe, supportive recovery and opportunities for self-sufficiency after crisis to the most vulnerable citizens in the Roanoke Valley.
During the holidays, these veterans are often overlooked. Mix 93.5, Roanoke's Christmas Music Station, along with the Salem Red Sox and Buffalo Wild Wings, are asking for specific item donations to help our veterans and show them our appreciation and gratitude this holiday season.
The most needed items, for both men and women, include the following:
- Body wash
- Mouthwash (non-alcohol)
- Underwear Men (large and x-large)
- Undershirts Men (large and x-large)
- Underwear Women (medium, large and x-large)
- Undershirts Women (medium, large and x-large)
- Hair comb/brush
- House slippers (large and up)
Monetary donations are also welcome and can be made directly HERE through ARCH Services.
Let’s make the holidays a little brighter for our local veterans who are in need.
