The Orange Community Women’s (OCW) group will be collecting paperback books to donate to the VA hospital in West Haven. The collection will run from October 28th through November 18th to encompass Veteran’s Day. There are two locations to donate your gently used paperback books ˗ High Plains Community Center, main entrance, in the drop box pictured above and at the VideoLab drop box located at 200 Boston Post Road, Orange. Paperback books of general interest such as fiction, non-fiction, thriller, drama, comedy, mystery will be accepted.
The Orange Community Women’s group was established in 1985 and is a community service based organization, giving back to those in need in our community, state and globally. Holding an annual fundraiser, and the recent mug and hat sale at the Orange Country Fair, all proceeds support projects such as scholarships for graduating Amity seniors, hosting craft nights with the seniors of Silverbrook Estates, providing food baskets for the needy, Relay for Life and most recently the Days for Girls Organization. OCW operates under the Connecticut Junior Women umbrella.
