For this year’s Spring service project, the Service Committee organized a drive for Veterans Inc. Helping homeless veterans since 1990, Veterans Inc. provides housing, medical, and employment assistance to veterans in the New England area. Based in Worcester, Massachusetts, their philosophy is “They were there when we needed them. We must be there now that they need us.” Veterans Inc. provides 24/7 support to veterans and their families with emergency, transitional, and long-term housing, career counseling and training, as well as support groups and substance abuse treatment programs. For more information on Veterans Inc., visit http://www.veteransinc.org/.
To help them supply essentials to veterans in need, the Service Committee asked LLNE members to donate gift cards that provide food, clothes, and medicine. The committee is pleased to report that $555 in gift cards was contributed by LLNE members. Thank you to everyone for their generous donations.
Thank you to the members of the LLNE Service Committee for organizing the Veterans Inc. Drive. The Service Committee is always looking for more volunteers! If interested, go to http://llne.org/committees/service/.
