Going black for the months of July and August does not mean that the members of Post 619 Jewish War Veterans in Sun Lakes are not still busy helping veterans. Members of the post still volunteer at the Southeast Clinic of the VA in Gilbert on a weekly basis. There are many volunteer jobs that need help and especially in the summer when many leave the valley. The next meeting will be September 21 but inquiries are answered all year long from any person regardless of race, religion or gender who would like to know more about the top veterans group in the valley that raises and distributes the most donations to the homeless and hospitalized veterans. During Memorial Day weekend members stood in the heat in front of area Fry’s grocery stores in Chandler and Laveen and the people were very generous. Our officer in charge of putting on events for veterans has been very busy. He has put on a dinner for 90 veterans at the VA Hospital and a barbeque for 70 at U.S. Vets. In addition, the group will put on a soft drink and donut event at the new Southeast Clinic of the VA.
