Family brings a bit of Christmas to veterans Family brings a bit of Christmas to veterans

Roanoke Times - 12/29/2017

Giles County resident Helen Beavers, daughter Lisa and granddaughters Sydney and Emily delivered 1,800 Christmas cards to the VA Hospital in Salem this year. Cards were donated by Peaks of Otter Daughters of the American Revolution, Captain Sally Tompkins United Daughters of the Confederacy and Walmart of Pearisburg.

Some "elves" of Giles County assisted in signing the cards, including most school students and the 4-H unit directed by Sarah Pratt. This is the second annual project of offering Christmas cards for veterans.
