December was a quiet month on the farm, however we were still busy helping our veterans. We delivered a bed to a veteran who came upon some rough times and helped another one in South Carolina with the same.
We made Christmas ornaments for our veterans at the V.A. who were unable to make it home for the holidays. These ornaments were designed by Frank Ress Sr. and made for his children when we were all very young. We had many happy holidays enjoying them on the tree. Hoping to bring a little holiday cheer to those in need, we reproduced these ornaments, which were hand delivered with a smile by our Rose Lady “Marty” (one of the kids who got to enjoy the originals).
This month also saw us sending out our first mass fund raising mailing. This effort was underwritten by:
- Petersen Excavating
- Kaisers Pub
- The Shanty
- Bobby’s Barrel Inn
- Central Rug & Carpet
We would like to thank these businesses for taking time during the busy holiday season to help the Freedom Farm raise the funds needed to keep our programs up and running.
We look forward to serving our veterans and families in the coming year, and hope you all had a safe and happy holiday season.
