GFWC gives thanks to the people of Selbyville

Editor:

The GFWC Selbyville Community Club expresses heartfelt thanks to the generous people in the Selbyville area who donated coats and other warm clothing during our December “Coats & Sweats for Vets” campaign.

Over 600 coats, jackets and fleece garments have been delivered to the Delaware Center for Homeless Veterans in Wilmington. From that central shelter location, the garments are distributed throughout the state to veterans in need of assistance.

This year we learned that the fastest growing segment of homeless veterans is women, many times with children. The donations this year included 115 women’s coats and jackets, and two children’s coats.

Our appreciation is also extended to the Town of Selbyville, whose town office has served as the collection point for donations during the six years that the coats drive has taken place.

The Selbyville Community Club is a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, whose stated purpose is community improvement through volunteerism.
