Redlands Tea Party Patriots Help Local Veterans for Christmas
Thanks to the generosity of our members and guests at the Redlands Tea Party Patriots/Unite IE Christmas party on December 10, we were able to donate $1026.12 to the KEYS program to help local veterans.
The KEYS program provides for homeless veterans in the Inland Empire.
- KEYS is a 501(c)(3) charity.
- KEYS is an Affiliate Nonprofit of the Housing Authority of San Bernardino County
- Their goal is to provide housing for the remaining 177 homeless veterans in our area by the end of the year 2015.
- ALL money raised will be used directly to help our veterans.
Greg Brittain and Carolyn Hays, cabinet members of the Redlands Tea Party Patriots, delivered the check to Julie Burnette and Carla Gamboa with the KEYS program on December 17.
KEYS will use the money for deposits for water service to get homeless veterans into stable housing. Government funding does not provide for this need.
Julie Burnette and Carla Gamboa will attend the Redlands Tea Party Patriots meeting on February 4, 2016 to report how the funds were used.
Our veterans have done so much for America. The Redlands Tea Party Patriots are pleased to be able to do something for them.
George W. Bush Turned Up at Children’s Hospital as Santa, But the Buzz Was About His Elf
(Biz Pac Review) – Whether you agree with his politics or not, and despite being vilified by the left for the better part of eight years, there’s no doubting that George W. Bush is a class act. The former president, dressed as Santa, visited the Dallas’ Children’s Medical Center recently to spread a little Christmas cheer with the young patients. And just as he does in his many activities with wounded veterans, Bush did so sans media.
But social media lit up like a Christmas tree when someone posted an image of the gaiety on Twitter — adding to the fun was a glimpse of what appeared to be a Secret Service agent in the background dressed as one of Santa’s elves!
Can you imagine the conversation that took place between Bush and the agent to make that happen?
It all began when a Daily Telegraph writer asked about presidents dressing up as Santa.
