OKFB WLC donates blankets to Norman Veterans Home

Sun, 24 Jul 2022 20:04:58 CDT

OKFB WLC donates blankets to Norman Veterans Home Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee members presented approximately 50 handmade blankets to the Normans Veterans Home on Monday, July 18.

The blankets were made by OKFB members as a community service project during the WLC’s annual conference held in April.

Candice McIntire, activity director at the Normans Veterans Home, said the blankets are an invaluable resource for the veterans at the facility.

“Several of our veterans – as they get older – they get cold,” McIntire said. “They will be used to keep them warm. Even in the summer heat we are experiencing, they are cold, so the blankets will be used to put over their laps or over their wheelchairs.”

“It will mean a lot to our veterans.”

The Norman Veterans Home is a long-term care home for veterans with 301 beds. The facility is currently home to 15 World War II veterans and 14 Purple Heart recipients.
