Veterans Day is a busy time for Streator’s Stars and Stripes Club.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., members of the club will hand out shopping lists at Streator’s Kroger of items to send care packages to troops. The club collects supplies and takes donations for the shipping of packages.
At 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, volunteers will pack the boxes at the Streator Incubator, 401 W. Bridge St., and get them prepared to ship.
Then, the Stars and Stripes Club will host its Holiday Shopping Expo 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, at the PNA Hall, 906 Livingston St., Streator. This is the largest fundraiser of the year for the club. Many vendors attend with each vendor paying for a spot and supplying an item to raffle. Lunch will be available for purchase.
