Help for our Veterans
1. PLEASE donate to our MMIA Drive. BOTH Fainting Goat and Sweet Creations are collection sights … let’s fill up their tubs with Beef Jerky, Baby Wipes, and Powdered Drink Mixes to send to our TROOPS!!!
2. Veterans are asked to the Fainting Goat location in order to talk to the Acting Under Secretary for Benefits in the Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary of US Veterans Administration, Danny Pummel. Mr. Pummel wants to attend the event so that he can listen to Veteran concerns.

Now through May 26 look for collection boxes in the following locations:

Anna’s Pizzeria
Ann’s Diamond Center
