Special thanks to a great Team, Kelly Farry and Linda Kelleher who attended the Strawberry Festival in Schenectady for the VMC.

Linda and Kelly were strategically stationed outside Ed’s BarberShop on Union St. The owner, Rafael, has been a long time supporter of the VMC and offers our Veterans who have been homeless free haircuts. Linda and Kelly shared our information with visitors to the table and collected donations so we could replenish the cleaning supplies shelves at the VMC. We are so blessed to have such a giving team of volunteers who always go above and beyond to support our Veterans!
