Bigelow Louisville Visits the Local Veteran’s Hospital

On November 12, 2013 seven Bigelow employees (Kim Barksdale, Sue Cortes, Kathy Fulton, Sherry O'Brien, Jeff Pinkerton, Chad Tennant and Kathy Van Sant) visited the local VA hospital to deliver gifts to the patients.  Prior to the event we shopped for items/necessities that the vets were in need of and stuffed Bigelow bags full of these items along with some American Classic Tea for the Troops.  We loaded the van and set off for the hospital where we were met by our tour guide Bob Bruckert (pictured below with the team) who is a two time veteran and has volunteered at the local hospital for over 11 years.  Bob took us around the hospital where we visited with the patients and handed out our goodies.  The patients/veterans were so grateful for the visit as well as the gifts given to them.  The event was truly an eye opening experience and everyone who participated agreed that this was one of the most rewarding charity events that we had participated in.  What a pleasure it was to spend time with some of the brave men and women who have given so much for our country!
