About the Mission:

 On Saturday, November 16, 2019 (2 pm to 4 pm) is our monthly PGR HOTH visit to the Northport VA, Building 92.

We will be celebrating some November Birthdays with cake and playing BINGO.

Please come join us. Your presence will put smiles on the faces of some really great residents there. They look forward to seeing everyone and hanging out with us!!

If you are bringing your children to the visit, and they need community service hours, please bring the school forms with you to be signed. Please let the RC in charge know if you're bringing young children and how many.

If you have prepackaged food to donate, you can bring it to the Salvation Army or the Beacon House located next to the Hospital, for the care of the homeless Veterans. We bring them all the leftover food from our visits.

Please meet at 1:45 pm inside the lobby of Building 92. The visit starts at 2 pm and ends approx 4 pm

Any questions or concerns please contact me

Important Reminders:
Please do not feed or help feed any of the Veterans that are with us. There are some who are on strict choking precautions and cannot eat any solid food or drink liquids. Ask a nurse if you are unsure when serving burgers and drinks. These patients will have a colored beaded necklace on which we will go over at the beginning of the visits.

Please check for contact precaution signs before entering a room to assist a Veteran. If you're unsure please ask a Nurse or RC in charge.

Wear gloves if you're handling food and wash your hands.

Remember to sign the roster.

Please make sure a nurse is present while the Veterans are eating.

Please do not take any pictures of the Veterans there, you need permission first.

If you or a group are making goodie bags for the Veterans, please check them first for any type of food, socks and bar soaps and remove them from the bags. Any food could be a potential choking hazard for any of the residents. All of the Veterans are on controlled diets, so anything with sugar/high in carbs can make them sick.
They are all on fall precautions so socks can only be the non-slippery kind.

Thank you very much to everyone who volunteers.
Ride safe if your riding over!!
