On November 11, 2019, Americans throughout the world will commemorate Veterans Day, a day set aside to thank our nation’s veterans for service given and sacrifices made to protect the freedoms of our great nation. Drennan & Ford Funeral Home and Crematory is sponsoring its tenth annual Sweaters for Veterans initiative.

Beginning Wednesday, Oct. 30 through Monday, Nov. 11, Drennan & Ford Funeral Home and Crematory will be collecting new or gently used sweaters, warm clothing, blankets, rain gear, gloves, hats, socks and the like to be distributed to individual veterans within the Olympic Peninsula in need of these items. For the last nine years, the funeral home has collected thousands of these articles from caring people throughout our region. Everyone in the community is invited to support our veterans by donating cold weather clothing to us at 260 Monroe Rd., Port Angeles, Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. during these days.

Drennan & Ford Funeral Home is Clallam County’s only locally owned and operated funeral home and crematory. Questions may be directed to Steve Ford, Funeral Director/co-owner at 360-457-1210 or by email at steve@drennanford.com.
