Memory Cafe veteran bagsThe Act Team undertook a new activity in conjunction with its Memory Café. Beginning January, Café participants help Erie’s homeless veterans by processing donated household items. Now at Erie’s Liberty House for a limited stay, these veterans will transition to their own apartments as those become available. To help supply the veterans’ new quarters, with help from our congregational members and friends, the Act Team will collect used or new house-hold items such as sponges, can openers, spatulas, dishes, table ware, pots, pans, cleaning products etc. Participants and staff in the Memory Cafe will stuff bags or boxes of these items for distribution and make accompanying cards because we have learned that they still seek a way to help others.
