More ‘angels’ needed

Cheryl Radin-Norman of Tiffin is trying to start a local chapter of a national non-profit organization called Soldiers’ Angels. An information booth is to be set up on Frost Parkway during the Heritage Festival, and Radin-Norman would like to have a unit in the parade.

Soldiers’ Angels volunteers make fleece blankets for deploying soldiers and for wounded veterans in Germany.

Locally, they help veterans file for benefits and crochet and knit items for veterans’ hospitals and nursing homes. A babies’ group throws baby showers for military spouses expecting children.
