December 19, 2023, Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial delivered Christmas gifts to over 150 veterans in different long-term care and assisted living facilities in the area. We collected Christmas wish lists from veterans and then placed them on our Adopt a Veteran Christmas tree on Veterans Day. Very generous members of the public took lists, purchased the items, and brought them back to MNVM. Our volunteers then delivered the gifts to veterans and brought Christmas joy and smiles! This is an annual event and anyone looking to participate next year should keep an eye out next Veterans Day for the tree!
