Residents of Splendido, a continuing care retirement community at 13500 N. Rancho Vistoso Blvd., pitched in to help homeless veterans by collecting  goods for donation.

On  25, American Legion Oro Valley Post No. 132 honored Splendido residents Jane Aslaksen and Julia Zahn for aiding the Homeless Veterans Resource Day “Stand Down” project earlier this month.  

Splendido residents rounded up more than 500 pieces of clothing and other items, donating them to 75 homeless veterans.
