Post 551 Delivers Winter Care Packages

December 2022 - Lower Care Fear LifeCare

American Legion Post 551 of Southport, NC made their annual delivery of approximately 150 winter care bags for Veterans. The bags contained snacks, socks, throat lozenges, etc. The bags were then divided by county and taken by Lower Cape Fear LifeCare volunteer coordinators to each LifeCare location. There, staff distributed to all Veteran home patients and those in skilled nursing facilities.  These bags are a welcome treat for our Veteran patients during the dreary days of winter.

Lower Cape Fear LifeCare is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing access to the highest quality LifeCare, education, and supportive services to our patients, their families, and the communities we serve.
