Event held to collect winter clothes for veterans


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Our veterans have made many sacrifices to keep us safe and as winter approaches, a local group is looking to keeping our veterans warm.

‘Albany County Cares about Our Veterans’ hosted a ‘Stuff the Bus’ event at Crossgates Mall Saturday morning, before all the commotion there occurred.

The goal was to collect new or gently used coats, hats, scarves, gloves, and boots to give to vets in need.

Donations are being collected through Dec. 23 at the mall in Lord and Taylor and at ShopRite.
