Diamond Oaks Village Supports Servicemen

Diamond Oaks Village, in Bonita Springs, will partner with Ammilvets to collect donations for care packages for servicemen and women and veterans throughout June. Those interested in making a donation can drop off items at the Diamond Oaks Village clubhouse.

In addition, the groups will provide “letters from home” to give servicemen some cheer, encouragement and a connection to familiar surroundings. Once the items have been collected, residents, staff and volunteers will assemble them into individual care packages that will be presented to Ammilvets for distribution.

“It really just seemed like a meaningful way to involve our residents in showing our support,” says Field Marketing Manager Lisa Wilkinson. “Many of our residents are veterans or family members of veterans themselves. What better way to honor them prior to our Independence Day than to come together as a community and send them some love?”

Location: 24110 S. Tamiami Tr. For more information, including a list of items needed, call 239-676-1259.
