Jammies For GI's

Tonawanda, NY - Jammies for GI's is a Tonawanda-based charity founded by Cheryl Lepsch after her son returned from the U.S. Marines and needed medical care.

Lepsch learned that many of the wounded must go for days or weeks without basic necessities, so she began sending anything she could directly to military hospitals and installations all over the country and the world.

What began as a small effort soon grew into a network of groups working together from all over Western New York.

Jammies for GI's was donated storage space by Paul Biloni owner of Colvin Cleaners, located at the corner of Mang and Elmwood, many volunteers from the Legion and Patriot Guard Riders as well as Jammies for GI's were at the cleaners sorting and palletizing all the donations.

On Friday, August 20 at 9 a.m., members of the Wheatfield Post American Legion Riders will be escorting Cheryl Lepsch of Jammies for GI's and a 24 foot Pennske truck loaded with clothing and personal items directly to the wounded troops at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.
