Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes, by Pat Sorgenti, Fairfield, CT
This past holiday season, Bigelow Tea collected items for the
Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes home in Bridgeport. This home is
the first transitional housing facility in the state for women
veterans. It is the female version of Homes for the Brave.
The home was purchased and renovated, and the ribbon cutting was on
October 21. It needed just about everything you could imagine a new
home would need times 10! On December 20, Sherri Luba, who
spearheaded the program, and I delivered comforters, pillows,
dishes, towels, and gift certificates and cash totaling more than
$450 to the Homes for the Brave site. Amanda Testi, Joy Kiss and
Laura Cust of Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes happily accepted
the Bigelow donations. Thank you to all the Bigelow Tea employees
who made this generous donation possible.
