Operation Sweaters for Vets: Walton’s Collecting Sweaters and Gloves


On November 11th, Americans throughout the world will commemorate Veterans Day to thank our nation’s veterans for service given and sacrifices made to protect the freedoms of this nation.

In conjunction with more than a thousand Veterans & Family Memorial Care Providers nationwide, Walton’s Funerals & Cremations is sponsoring the VFMC Operation Sweaters for Veterans initiative throughout Northern Nevada and Susanville.

Now through Veterans Day, November 11th, Walton’s is collecting new or gently used sweaters and gloves which will be delivered to the Homeless Veterans Outreach Program and other veterans service organizations.

“This is just one small way we can support our heroes, and we’re honored to do our part,” said Tammy Dermody, owner of Walton’s.

In addition, Walton’s is the official Cell Phones for Soldiers drop off center. People are invited to bring in their old cell phones to recycle and convert into One Hour of Free Talk time for our heroes overseas. Everyone in the community is invited to support our veterans and military heroes by donating sweaters, gloves and old cell phones at Walton’s Colonial Mortuary, 115 South Lassen Street.
