She said that she received 14 large tubs of yarn for the drive.

Michael Catoe is the Voluntary Service Specialist for the Carl Vinson VA and said that residents appreciate being appreciated like this.

“When they get recognized from someone in the community it perks them up you can kind of see them go wow someone really appreciates the service that they did,” said Catoe.
