The Vietnam Veterans of America will conduct a used clothing and household good drive in and around Brockport, NY on March 13th.
Winter is almost over and this is the perfect way to get a head start on spring cleaning. Call Vietnam Veterans of America (1-800459-8387) and they’ll come by your house to pick up your discarded clothes and household goods.
