It's time to appreciate the country's veterans. The Menlo Democrats Club, in association with the North Peninsula Democrats, is collecting new blankets for veterans with post-traumatic stress syndrome on Saturday, Nov. 12.
Drop new blankets off in the parking lot behind Trader Joe's (720 Menlo Ave.) in Menlo Park between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. Saturday. The club also encourages people to give handwritten cards expressing their appreciation for the veteran's service.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange pickup if you want to donate, but can't make the Saturday event.
