Northborough – Military veterans of Northborough, who are over age 70, received a special delivery May 2 from the Boros Cares 4 Troops (BC4T) founders: Leslie Arsenault, Karen Brewster, Beth Davison and Michelle Gillespie.

These veterans are in the age group deemed particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus. Their care packages contain food, personal care items and greeting cards. Donations are currently sought for packages to be delivered to 350 veterans.

Greeting cards and monetary donations toward food purchases can be mailed to BC4T, P.O. Box 304, Northborough, MA 01532. Online donations of at least $25 can be made at BC4T.org. Personal care items purchased at Northborough’s CVS with a mention of BC4T will go directly to the cause. Nonperishable goods, personal items, paper products and greeting cards can dropped off in the blue bin at the back entrance of Michelle Gillespie Realtors, 10 Main St. in Northborough.
