Thanks to TCC Gives for the grant to purchase hams for veterans during this Christmas season. This was a great year to be able to help in this way since the cost of food has really hit people on fixed incomes. A veteran called before Christmas to ask if Veterans’ Outreach was doing anything special for Christmas and our Executive Director told him we were giving away hams. His words were, “Oh my God, I was just rolling my pennies hoping to have enough to purchase a ham for Christmas!” She told him to come to the office, we had one waiting for him. He was really touched and relieved.
There are a lot of similar cases, there are so many veterans struggling right now. We are so grateful!
