This is a breakout year for Veterans’ Outreach. We are very proud of the support that we have provided for 29 years, helping veterans tens of thousands of times. Most of the staff and volunteers have been part of our team for many years, we call ourselves the Veterans’ Outreach family and you are welcome to join us. One volunteer in his 70’s even calls me “Dad” and he’s older than me!
We start the morning with the Pledge of Allegiance and prayer. So, what they say is true – a family that prays together stays together. We have had many eye-opening experiences from the vets that we have served. Those magical moments, when God worked through us, and seeing the joys come alive in those vet client’s faces are unforgettable. When they seek us out or any of the referring agencies, they know that we’ll do our best to get that veteran the help that they need and leave with pride and integrity in tack.
This year I turn 69…Most folks have already retired and enjoying the good life retirement has to offer. Nooo, the good LORD just made my plate much fuller!
The Veterans’ Outreach Complex was born just before Christmas of 2022. That is when two local realtors came by our office, after they saw the Interview by my wife, Teri, about our charity. Unbeknownst to her she was presented an award for “Hometown Hero”! She was shocked by the award, and she announced that she did not deserve it. The interview promoted that we were looking for a bigger building for several years now. We ran out of space for accepting physical donations.
Well, the realtors said that our new building lay across the street and the auction was tomorrow. Talking about short notice! We attended the auction, and the new chapter begins! Increasing the size of our office space and parking lot to over 700%! We are hoping that the Grand Opening will be in the springtime of 2023.
We are targeting other organizations that are veteran friendly, to join us so we can have a full-blown veteran service center. We have three buildings, two of those have office spaces for lease. We have a total of sixteen office spaces there. There are six office spaces available for those that are interested.
So, now comes the tooling and configuring on this new project of assembling and welcoming our new partners. We need sponsors, developers, volunteers, organizations, foundations, clubs, and just about anyone that wants to help make a positive difference in our veterans’ lives.
BTW…Our first Event in 2023 is called “tine’ time
