Holiday Personal Hygiene Kits for Veterans

Do you remember the World War I marching song, “Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag; And smile, smile, smile”? 

You have an opportunity to donate to a veteran’s kit-bag!  Our Veterans Initiative Committee is collecting Chap Stick, Kleenex packets and small Pocket Combs for veterans at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System. The personal hygiene kits will be distributed at the VA Medical Center during the holidays.

Please consider purchasing Chap Stick Classic Original (fragrance free), tissue packets or pocket combs the next time you are at the store. All items must be in their original wrappings. We need 50 of each!

Bring your donations to the December 1, 8 or 15 meeting in the Michigan Union. Contact Don Deatrick with questions.

And. . .just in case you want to sing, here are the lyrics to the chorus:

Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag 

And smile, smile, smile, 

While you’ve a lucifer to light your fag

Smile, boys, that’s the style. 

What’s the use of worrying? 

It never was worth while 

So pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag 

And smile, smile, smile.
