There’s a project that’s going on that I heard about and wanted to let you know about involving several organizations of our community, and is helping many Capital Region veterans.

Red Cross.Org

It's called ‘Totes Of Hope’. This is a community project of The American Red Cross Of Northeastern New York, that collects new and unused personal care items for homeless and in-need veterans.

Many of the totes will be packed on September 11, 2013 (9/11) at the American Red Cross Warehouse, 21 Railroad Avenue in Albany. This is all part of the ‘National Day Of Service And Remembrance'. This will be happening between 10:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. by people from The American Red Cross, Armed Forces staff and The Girl Scouts Of Northeastern New York. The totes are scheduled to be delivered at the end of September, with the help of Albany area veteran’s organizations.

This is where you come in - If you would like to know more about ‘Totes Of Hope’ or how you can help, call 518-694-5160. After all, it’s about how we can help those that serve our great country.

WGNA's Richie Phillips also did a story about 'Totes Of Hope' earlier this year.
