A convenient collection box has been placed at the Town Center entry to receive donations of winter clothing that will benefit the Eddy House and Veterans Services. As the temperature drops, both groups have requested donations of new-with-tags or gently used winter coats, sweatshirts/hoodies, beanies and gloves.
The collection is sponsored by the Big Hearted Men, a Somersett-based group of men of all ages who desire to be involved in local philanthropy. There’s also a social and camaraderie component to the group, which meets regularly at the Peavine Taphouse to share friendships. Visit the website at www.BigHeartedMen.com
