SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Showing our veterans how much we appreciate them isn't an act limited to Veterans Day. "Operation: Sweaters for Veterans" is the perfect opportunity to show that spirit this holiday season. 

Bradford O'Keefe is collecting new or gently used sweaters and gloves for veterans living in the VA homes and hospitals to keep them warm this winter. 

"We hope the community will join us in warming the hearts of some very special men and women that have given so much for our country and community. It truly is the least we can do for what they've done," Jeffrey O'Keefe said.

Donations will be accepted at all Bradford O'Keefe Funeral Homes locations across South Mississippi, Monday through Friday, 8am-4:30pm, through November 30, 2017. 

"Beyond the natural appreciation and responsibility we hold toward our veterans, our family has a special affinity toward our service men and women," O'Keefe said. "We have been serving in the armed forces since we first came to this country in 1865 and currently employ nine veterans."
