          Veteran's & Community Housing Coalition - The Guardian House
Located in Saratoga County, the Guardian House provides a transitional housing program for female veterans. We will be collecting items for those who wish to donate to this cause during conference check-in. Items in need - Personal Care Items, Pillows, Twin Size Comforters, Twin Size Sheet Sets, Towels and Washcloths. Gift cards are always welcome - The ladies at Guardian House have little to no income. Gift cards help Veterans purchase food, clothing (winter coats & boots), gas, and other items we take for granted.
