EAGLE POINT, Ore. — A Rogue Valley’s boy’s dream is helping homeless vets stay warm during the winter season. For the second year in a row, 10-year old James Pitzen is collecting beanies and socks for vets in need. Last year, he collected hundreds of clothing items for them with the help of the community. This year, he hopes to do that and more.
“I like to see people getting stuff when they don’t have a lot,” Pitzen said. “They’re 1,300 homeless vets in the state and 298 homeless vets in Jackson County.”
