Step onto the streets of Old Town Lewisville and enter a friendly, bustling marketplace of locally owned shops, restaurants and specialty services.
“Tis the season for giving. We are currently collecting donations for Service Veterans and Deployed Troops through Soldiers’ Angels to be given during the holidays. Now through Lewisville’s Holiday at the Hall event, you can drop off your donations at Beasley’s Jewelry. A donation of one twin-sized fleece blanket will keep a soldier or veteran warm for the holidays and let them know that they are loved! They are truly the reason that we have the freedom to enjoy events like “Holiday at the Hall” in our community. These blankets are going to not only be a symbol of our appreciation, but will help them to keep warm during the winter months. We will be more than happy to take any donation that is received. Abbey Day of Beasley’s Jewelry will be personally delivering half of the donated blankets to the VA Hospital in Denton, TX. The other half of the donated blankets and all toiletry/care package items will be shipped overseas to Serving US Troops in Afghanistan. You can drop off your donation at Beasley’s Jewelry in Lewisville, TX at anytime between now and December 3, 2012.
The following is a list of items that we can accept for donation:
Twin-Sized Fleece Blankets
Any hygiene-related items
Caps - baseball or knit*
Shorts or briefs*
Lip Balm (Chapstick)
**Please NO METAL containers**
If you have any questions, please email Abbey Day at email@example.com or call (940) for details.
Blackall Photography is also offering a free print when you book a family session between now and November 30, 2012 when you bring your donated items.
