Holiday Happenings for our Veterans

Thanksgiving and Christmas can be difficult times for veterans on tiny budgets.  This year, I SUPPORT THE 1% was determined to make it jolly for as many as possible.

Most of the baskets (but not all)!

Thanks to the State Street Kroger’s, we assembled Thanksgiving baskets for 70 veterans, both single and with families.  Due to the generosity of the public who participated, we were able to include gift cards in each for them to supplement whatever they needed or desired.

For a Christmas celebration, we treated them to a delicious luncheon at the Horizon Conference Center in the beautiful surroundings they offer.  The staff at the Center worked with us to make it not just affordable, but also a genuine experience for those who might otherwise have spent the season alone.

We are so appreciative of all of YOU who make it possible for us to express such wonderful support for our military veterans.  Because of YOU, they know that the public’s words of support are not just WORDS, but a tangible reality.  Believe us, you are making a world of difference to them!
