ABC (Ability Building Center) is partnering with the DAV Chapter 28 Mayo SE in Rochester to produce commemorative pillowcases for veterans currently in area nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

Available in editions for each branch of the armed forces, the cases are assembled by ABC participants and then screen printed with “Proud Veteran” before distribution to the recipients.
Rich Daly, Commander of DAV Chapter 28 in Rochester, selected ABC for production after a discussion with Executive Director Bruce Remme and examination of ABC’s facilities.
“ABC is a great organization to work with and partnering with them added a special touch to the entire effort” said Commander Daly.
Four ABC participants have been assigned, overseen by ABC’s Linda Livingston. “Our workers take special pride in doing this job for veterans, as most have parents or grandparents who have served in the military,” Livingston explained.
So far ABC has produced 467 cases. Both organizations hope this is the beginning of a lasting partnership.
