COMMUNITY SERVICES VOLUNTEERS SEW FOR VETERANS

by Joy Hunter

With chilly winter nights in the forecast, representatives from Clearwater Church Community Services Center presented 105 quilted lap robes to veterans at Bay Pines VA (Veterans Administration) Healthcare in St. Petersburg, Fla. For 35 years, volunteers have worked tirelessly to sew lap robes for the veterans.

Joan Holm, Community Services director, and her husband, Eric, work five days a week at the Clearwater Church’s Community Services thrift store, in addition to distributing free clothes and food for the needy. Two volunteers who regularly work at the center are not Seventh-day Adventists.
