Marlborough – In observance of Flag Day, the Salvation Army Marlborough Service Unit partnered with the Marlborough Junior Woman's Club (MJWC) to introduce a fundraiser called “Flags for Our Forces.” For a $20 donation, a flag was placed at the Doughboy Monument outside the Walker Building and displayed from June 14 to June 16. Proceeds will assist local veterans or families of active duty soldiers, who will be referred by the Metrowest Veterans Outreach Center. St. Mary's Credit Union helped collect the donations.

Names of veterans and soldiers in whose honor donations were contributed will be listed at facebook.com/pages/The-Salvation-Army-Massachusetts-Service-Units/484713654926392.
