Thank You, Daughters of 1812 and W.IN.G.S.

The United States Daughters of 1812 (U.S.D., 1812) in Hot Springs Village have long been supporters of St. Francis House, arranging for donations of coats, clothing, towels sets and other items for the Veterans in the Re-entry program.

Recently, W.IN.G.S (Women in God’s Service) assisted U.S.D., 1812 in delivering men’s winter clothing, towel sets, toiletries and other items to St. Francis House. But they went further than just helping with a delivery. Informed by U.S.D., 1812 of the need for quilts for Veterans who were leaving SFH for their own housing, W.IN.G.S ladies and their families began making quilts and other items to give to the Veterans to make their new homes, “homier.” They also made small stuffed toys for the Veterans’ children, back-packs for the Veterans to take to training and stuffed hearts for the Veterans thanking them for their service. Thank you, ladies, for your generosity!

You can help too! U.S.D., 1812 will continue to collect needed items for St. Francis House Veterans. For information email
