Rejuvenate . Revitalize . Return Home .and Sweaters Away!By: Fred Bachman, Bachman Hebble Funeral Service“The Lone Ranger didn’t need a sweater but others do, Kimosabe”I was watching some old Westerns the other day and one of the programs happened to be several Lone Ranger black and white old television shows. I was thinking about our Sweater cam- paign that we have run for many years and thought, “There are many people here in town that need sweaters and I wonder if the Lone Ranger could help us this year?” I canjust see it now....The announcer say-ing, “With a fieryhorse named Silver,the Masked Manfought for law andorder in the earlyWest and sweptthe towns in searchof sweaters for allthe good boys andgirls and big folkstoo.”Let’s join togeth-er like the LoneRanger and Tontoand as a group, com-mittee, or individualdonate a sweater thisseason. For the past23 years, we at theBachman HebbleFuneral Service havebeen the collectioncenter for sweaters. Then we distribute those new or gently used sweaters to agencies and individuals who give them but not sell them to others. To the aver- age person a sweater is an accessory; but to a homeless individual or out-on- their luck family, a sweater may mean a measure of warmth to keep them from getting ill.The Bachman Hebble Funeral Service will be collecting sweaters for adults, children, and infant sweaters from now until Thanksgiving Day. Then before Christmas the funer-al home contacts area agencies to donate them to their clientele.In the past, we have given to: Veteran Medical Center, In-as-Much House, the Haven of Rest Ministries, the Catholic Charities of greater Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, and Santa’s Helpers just to name a few.We were surprised the last week of September that a local church had col- lected sweaters and brought over some 350 ladies and children’s sweaters.We are very fortunate to have so many kind church people in the community. That number is a great start to our 2018 sweater drive, thank you!We are pleased to have the fine folksat Senior Times join our drop off location centers; they will collect sweat- ers at the WW Thayne Advertising building at 4642 Capital Avenue SW on the Southside of town. For the second year local offices of Edward Jones will also be collection spots; they include: Renea Perry Edward Jones office at77 South 20th Street, Suite 2; Keith Corts Edward Jones office at 4055 West Dickman Road, Suite B; Dave Hoppeand Luke Peck Edward Jones office at 4625 Beckley Road Suite 400-A; Brent Fast Edward Jones officeat 18 West Michigan Avenue, Suite 1-A; Jacob Miller Edward Jones office at 291 East Columbia Avenue; Karen Reeves Edward Jones office at 3164 Capital Avenue SW; and Patrick Garrett Edward Jones officeat 727 Capital Avenue SW. We appreciate these fine businesses joining our campaign.The gently usedor new sweaters can also be dropped off at the Bachman Hebble Funeral Service locat- ed in Urbandale at 223 North Bedford Roadany weekday during normal business hours or in the mornings on Saturday. Please contact Josh, Fred, or Lexie at Bachman Hebble by phone at (269) 965-5145 or by email at fred@bach- has been a tremendous out- pouring of generosity from all the homes, schools, churches, and orga- nization that have contributed in the past. Now we seek your help to facil- itate a warm winter season for others who need our help. Just like the Lone Ranger fought for justice in the early West we can fight for warming others who we don’t even know.Even if you have just one sweater to donate, we will gladly accept it. If you have a child’s sweater, please label the size or age.Bachman Hebble Funeral Serviceis proud of the community’s generous giving through these past 23 yearsand looks forward to another year of helping others. We wish to thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness and support.
