Lots of colorful fabric, lots of help and lots of busy hands made this a very productive meeting for the Jean Marie Cardinell Chapter, NSDAR, on Saturday, Feb. 4. This is the third year the Chapter has tied fleece blankets for the VA Community Resource and Referral Center.

The center is located at 1223 Center Street. Suite 17 in downtown Des Moines. The site provides to VA-eligible Veterans free walk-in showers, laundry, internet, phone and full range of services for homeless Veterans.

The Veterans often state that they really appreciate the “new” fleece blankets.

What could be better? The current officers brought delicious soups, salads, and fruit for a filling lunch.
