VETERAN TRAVELS BY BICYCLE
Visiting Veterans’ Outreach has become part of the weekly routine for many veterans. They stop by to browse through Heroes’ Closet which consists of donated clothing, footwear, coats, linens, household goods, and some furniture. They stop by to get help with food for the week from the Freedom Food Pantry.
Veterans have been known to say, “This is my social time”, “This is a safe place”, I always leave with my dignity”, “I look forward all week to coming by” and other similar statements.
Yesterday, a veteran on a bicycle came by for help with food. We are grateful to be able to do this work and provide this safety net for at-risk veterans.
May God bless all veterans.
