The American Red Cross Greater St. Louis Region celebrated America’s birthday with our veterans at the VA St. Louis Hospital at Jefferson Barracks.
Red Cross volunteers, along with members of the Veterans Task Force of the Boeing Corporation, served a BBQ lunch to more than 100 veterans and guests. The participants also played Bingo, with special Red Cross prizes.
Thank you to all of the veterans for their service, kindness, and for welcoming us into their lives this 4th for a fun and entertaining afternoon.
