Thanks To Yanks would like to thank the community for helping to support the annual Hope for Heroes Donation Drive, which collected items for homeless veterans residing at various Massachusetts Veteran shelters. Over 200 boxes/bags of donated items were collected including new sheets, blankets, towels, socks, underwear, toiletries, gift cards along with some gently used men’s/women’s clothing. Each of the six Veteran shelters had their specific request for needed items that we can accommodate.

This donation drive was only possible, with the assistance of:

  • community volunteers
  • DCH Toyota Milford, who hosted a donation drop off.
  • Milford Federal, who hosted a donation drop off.
  • Woodland Elementary School, who contributed donations. Including Assistant Principal, Mrs. Lisa Kingkade, who helped spread the word out to families and educate the student body in the meaning of Veterans Day.
  • Woodland Elementary PTO, including Ms. Erica Reilly, who helped to promote the drive.
  • Milford Girl Scout Junior Troop 30570 and Carolyn Deslaurier-Tate, Milford Junior Scout Leader, who sorted/separated all donated items.
  • Brookside Elementary, who supported with a coin drive.
