Giving them a hand
CARLA TIGHE, LEFT, a physical therapist with 41 years of service at Addison County Home Health and Hospice, presents Middlebury American Legion Post 27 Commander Laura Flint with 45 backpacks and handbags for the Homeless Women Veterans Program earlier this fall. The backpacks and the personal care items included in them were donated by Tighe’s coworkers at ACHHH over a six month period. The program is sponsored in conjunction with Easter Seals and the intention is to assist homeless women veterans in finding permanent housing. The backpacks will provide a starter supply of personal care items to keep the women vets comfortable as they transition into permanent housing. The ACHHH offered special thanks to Subway, Darn Tough Socks, Middlebury Dental and Ted Tighe.
