The Woman’s Club of St. Matthews was honored to support Louisville’s Robley Rex Veterans Administration (VA) Hospital’s Psychiatric Ward as part of their Public Issue’s project. The heart of the project was Mental Health, with a particular focus on women veterans.
The clubs Public Issues chairman met with key department personnel at the VA to ascertain what types of needs patients had, brave and self-sacrificing women who have served our country, and how best the Woman’s Club could address their particular needs
Our Kentucky women veterans were in need of reading glasses, t-shirts, undergarments, jigsaw puzzles, colored pencils and writing journals. Items that seem so insignificant to most, but mean so much to those confined to hospital quarters.
The members of the Woman’s Club of St. Matthews stepped up to serve those who have served so many. Public Issues chairman , Club President , along with members of the club’s executive board, participated in a presentation of contributions to our female veterans of the VA’s psychiatric ward. Club members met personally with recipients in the VA psychiatric ward’s dining room and were able to see firsthand these women’s genuine gratitude.
This project was a very rewarding experience for our club, and was greatly appreciated by the VA Director, staff and patients.
God Bless Our Military!
