Hanscom FCU Donates Personal Care Items to Local Veterans

Hanscom AFB, MA (Jan. 20, 2022) – Hanscom Federal Credit Union donated $1,000 worth of new toiletries and personal care items to the Department of Veterans Affairs Voluntary Service (VAVS) in support of the VA Boston Healthcare System’s Brockton campus. The Brockton VA Medical Center offers both short- and long-term care to veterans, including inpatient and outpatient mental health, medical and nursing care, rehabilitation, and hospice care.

The credit union has a longstanding commitment to supporting the health and welfare of our nation’s active duty service members and veterans. Emotional, physical, and social health are all crucial parts of a person’s wellbeing, all of which are being challenged even more as the pandemic continues to cause illness and strain resources.  “Caring for someone goes far beyond just making sure their body is healthy, and these care items are one small part of that,” said John A. Delcore, Hanscom FCU’s chairman of the board. “We continue to strive to show our veterans and their families that we remember them and care about them, especially as they heal.”

Toiletries and personal items such as shaving cream, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, socks, shoes, and undergarments are appreciated by patients at the hospital, who often find it difficult to obtain the personal care items they need during their stay. Among the most sought after by VAVS for the Brockton VA Medical Center are clothing items as they are infrequently donated. More information about donating to the VA Boston Healthcare System is available at https://www.va.gov/boston-health-care/work-with-us/volunteer-or-donate/.
