AAUW Del Mar-Leucadia Branch donates to local veterans


In alignment with the American Association of University Women Del Mar-Leucadia branch theme of “Time for Action,” Program Director Patricia Johnson-Khalifa called on AAUW branch members to support veterans in the community who are experiencing homelessness or are challenged by lack of community resources.

Local branch members responded by donating gloves, mittens, scarves and knit caps. Roy Gardiner, with Interfaith Community Services in Oceanside, gratefully accepted the donations and will make sure that those in need will receive the items.
