How are you #StillServing?
Our VFW Post 3522 was aware that we had a need that was very much at the forefront of many veterans: their ability to provide food for their families. Our post approved an innovative program that was dubbed The Veterans Table. We partnered with several different agencies and set up a program that was introduced at our West Virginia VFW Midwinter Conference. Regardless of income, or any other benefits our Veterans would have food for their table fo the foreseeable future.
Why do you do it?
As a Post Service Officer, I volunteered to act on behalf of our VFW Post in the delivery of food to this area, receiving the groceries, processing the requests we received, and insuring Veteran status, delivering groceries to those who were homebound, and doing the record-keeping required. Enlisting other members in assisting in delivering the food that our Veterans needed.
