2020 gave us some new challenges our donors/ supporters pitched in and helped us learn that we can make it through new challenges whether it is having to deliver food boxes to homebound or door to door pick up or purchasing PPE’S or new social distancing. Our community of Veterans and supporters pulled through and made us realize we are adaptable.
Thank you for your continued support. It is truly appreciated we could not do it without each and every one of you!!
We have determined that a pledge of $25 a month will cover the monthly food box for a veteran and cover other operating expenses to ensure the needs of veterans are met.
