‘Stamps for the Wounded’ collection under way

The Randall VFW Auxiliary of Post 9073 and the Randall Cushing Lions are once again collecting stamps for the disabled veterans. This is the third collection cycle, the previous two collections netted 10,000 stamps four years ago and 12,000 stamps two years ago.

The collection of canceled stamps will be at various Randall businesses. Each business will have a stamp house for the collection of stamps. The Auxiliary and Lions will be collecting stamps until the end of February 2014. The stamps are used by veterans in veterans hospitals to start collections and expand existing collections.

“Stamps for the Wounded” was founded in 1942, in response to a request by the armed services hospitals and is a service of the Lions International Stamp Club.
