Bright Spot: Lap robes for veterans
Our Bright Spot shines on Nancy van Apeldoorn, founder of Lap Robes for Veterans.
We caught up with her at the Fairport Baptist Home last Friday, where she delivered lap robes to the veterans who live there – each one custom-made for the branch of service they represent.
“We’ve delivered over 45 today,” she said. “Some are for the future, and not only this nursing home, but we also provide lap robes to the Monroe County Hospital, and also Honor Flight. This was out seventh year for Honor Flight. This year, we’ve given out over 1,400, and in the 11 years, we’ve given out 9,000 lap robes.”
Our Bright Spot shines on Nancy and her volunteers as a grateful community thanks our veterans for their service.
