(WBRE/WYOU-TV) A Pottsville area family-owned funeral home is paying tribute to those who served this country with a ‘Sweaters for Veterans’ Clothing Drive”.
For the second year, the James Humphrey Funeral Home in Pottsville, Schuylkill County is collecting everything from sweaters to suits and shoes to give back to veterans in need. The drive will be going on until through the end of November.
If you have anything you’d like to donate, you can drop it off directly at the funeral home located on West Market Street in Pottsville.
Funeral Director, Jim Humphrey says the family has several members who have served– including his father.
“It’s an honor to serve them because they served us. So in my eyes it’s it is an honor to serve any veteran that comes through our door…we go above and beyond. We personalize every service to the veteran and we offer so much to the families as well”
Organizers say they’ll bring all the items collected to either “My Father’s House Servants to All”, Vietnam’s Veterans of America, or the “Purple Hearts Association.”
