Porcupine Bash: LIVE Musical Fundraiser For Disabled Vets

22 veterans commit suicide every single day. Some people slap a "Support Our Troops" bumper sticker on their car and call it a day. Others, like northern Michigan resident Robin Lindenberg, Publisher of the Porcupine Press, work to make the lives of our veterans a little bit easier. The Truth Is Viral is honored to have been asked to broadcast this fundraising concert, live from Joe's Bar in the "Warm and Friendly Port" of Alpena Michigan.

NEW clothing items that are desperately needed, in L, XL, and XXL sizes include:

Flannel PJs.
Sweat suits.
Wide suspenders.
Gloves (thin, for wheelchair users.)
Winter jackets.
Tennis shoes with (velcro lacing.)
Mittens, gloves, winter hats.
Ankle and over-the-calf style socks.
Regular hankies.

Needed comfort items include:

Shaving cream.
Denture cleaner & adhesives.
Soft-bristle toothbrushes and toothpaste.

Miscellaneous items needed include:

Crossword puzzle books.
Word-find books.
Audio books.
Universal remotes for TVs.
Neck pillows.
AA and AAA batteries.
Writing materials.
Postage stamps.

If you live in northeastern Michigan you can bring those items to Chief's Bar and Joe's Bar in Alpena. Other drop boxes have been strategically positioned around the Sunrise Side.
