From a press release
On Monday, July 3, members and candidates from the Republican Committee of Chester County delivered shirts, shorts, hats, sunglasses, and more to the Coatesville VA Medical Center.
“Chester County veterans have served our nation. It has been an honor and pleasure for the past three years to visit with them as the nation celebrated Independence Day,” said David Sommers, RCCC Charis community outreach director and Chester County commissioner candidate.
The July 4 RCCC Veterans’ Clothing Drive is in its third year; it helps approximately 40 to 50 veterans at the facility with much-needed men’s and women’s clothing items, as requested. “The men and women of our Armed Forces have sacrificed so much for the freedoms we enjoy. Helping them with basic necessities is the least we can do. We owe them so much more,” said Andy Rongaus, candidate for Common Pleas judge.
Community outreach is the mission of the RCCC Charis program and is reflected in our current slate of candidates who affirm the values of public service. Members have the opportunity to engage in worthy endeavors throughout Chester County all year long.
“I had the privilege to be a part of helping supply our local veterans at the Coatesville VA with clothing and supplies. It is important to keep these veterans in our hearts and thoughts for the great sacrifices that they have given to our country,” said Roy Kofroth, candidate for Chester County Sheriff.
This year, the RCCC is partnered with JDog Junk Removal & Hauling Western Main Line for the first time. JDog is veteran-owned and veteran-operated.
