As part of its community outreach and veteran support programs, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 227, Dean K. Phillips Memorial Chapter of Northern Virginia, has donated more than 600 travel-size toiletries to the Lamb Center, a non-profit day time service center for homeless people in Fairfax County.
Doris Paul, the center’s volunteer manager, accepted the items from Chapter 227 vice president Leonard Ignatowski.
Chapter members donated the toiletries over the last several months from their travels. In addition, the national office of Vietnam Veterans of America donated four boxes of women’s and men’s toiletry travel pouches.
