The Village of Deerfield and the American Legion Deerfield Post 738 invite everyone to participate in the Give Where You Live – Deerfield service campaign to make a difference in the lives of area veterans, starting now and continuing through November 10.
Join Mayor Rosenthal from noon to 3 p.m. on Friday, November 10 at Village Hall for service activities suitable for all ages. Volunteers will come together to make no-sew fleece blankets, assemble care packages and write letters of thanks and encouragement to veterans.
Everyone can help, starting now, by donating:
- Non-perishable food
- Clothing, small appliances and household items
- Sweat suits, socks and underwear
- Gift cards to popular chain restaurants, such as McDonalds, Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts
