GIVING TO THOSE WHO GAVE
With the help of the Office of Veterans Affairs, the physicians and staff of A&AS will be providing support to needy veterans and their families this holiday season. These families are in need of clothing, food, and gifts for small children. All offices will have a display of tags with gift requests that patients can take and return the gift to the office by December 8th. Patients are also welcome to give monetary donations and the staff of A&AS will purchase the gifts and gift cards.
Please help us support this very worthy cause.
