On December 1, the Explorers will have their 5th annual V.A. Motorcade, and they will deliver these items to the V.A. hospital in Lake Park, Florida.

"This year during the holidays its a good time to think about those who can't be with us, those who are in the V.A., so the Lowndes County Office Explorers are collecting items that those patients in the V.A. use," said Lowndes County PIO Paige Dukes.
