You have an opportunity to honor a veteran by keeping them warm this winter. You can do just that by taking part in Operation Sweaters for Veterans.

Max A. Sass and Sons Funeral Homes has teamed up with Veterans and Family Memorial Care to collect gently used or new sweaters and gloves.

"I'm sure if you go through those closets at home you've got a few sweaters that you could part with and keep somebody warm through this cold Wisconsin winter," said

The funeral home is collecting the items through Veterans Day, November 11th. That's when all of the sweaters will be delivered to V.A. hospitals or veterans homes.
