Laker Michel Michelsen Lee tips us to a special program organized by the Albany branch of the Red Cross, helping  local vets with their second annual "Totes of Hope" campaign.

It’s designed to collect personal care items like socks, shaving cream, shampoo, body wash, deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste, for veterans who need a helping hand. All items must be new.

Michel tells us there are two collection boxes in Schroon: Friedman Realty and the Schroon Lake branch of the Glens Falls National Bank. 

From Michel:

“There are also flyers at the Post Office, the bank, Friedman’s, and the used book store of the Schroon Lake Friends of the Library,.

The collection phase of the campaign ends on Labor Day, September 1, 2014.  I will let you know the results of the collection efforts in the Schroon Lake area.”

It’s great cause and we all know how much $5 or $10 spent at the DG, aka: The Dollar General aka “The Schroon Lake Shopping Mall”  can go!
