The following information was posted on Facebook by Westford Veterans Services Officer Terry Stader: 

“People often call here and ask about making donations to assist veterans. So who can you donate to?

First of all, thank you very much for thinking of our veterans and our military service members. Here are just a few that are my favorites:

Operation Delta Dogs – http://www.operationdeltadog.org
NEADS – http://www.neads.org
Fisher House Boston – http://fisherhouseboston.org

Also… keep in mind, that donations to purchase wreaths for the grave sites of veterans buried in Westford are needed right now, see Wreaths Across America – MA0049 at https://wreaths.fastport.com/donateLocation.html?page=22166 (Donations to this web page, stay here in Westford…not to any other location!)

I might add… that I often will give out Market Basket gift cards as well as Walgreen, CVS and gas gift cards. We can always use them for filling an immediate need.

So, if you feel generous, consider one of these options.”

Editor’s note: NEADS stands for, National Education for Assistance Dog Services.

The Fisher House Boston provides housing for military families while a loved one is receiving in-house treatment at a Boston medical center.
