Event description

Description

This event is to provide food to Veterans in need for the holidays.

If this event shows sold out, we have reached the number of baskets that funding is available for at this time. As additional funding allows, more baskets will be released. Please check back on this site for availability.

The Veterans' Food Drive began in 2009 as a dream to help provide a Thanksgiving Meal to roughly 15 Veterans who would not have otherwise had one. In its‘ inaugural year, we were able to provide 109 Veterans and their families the means for a Thanksgiving meal they would not have had otherwise. Now, ten years later the need has grown tremendously as our desire to help those who have served us has grown as well. We collaborate with businesses, clubs, schools, and churches to help us collect non-perishable food items that are then used to help assemble and provide approximately 6-8 grocery bags 'aka' “baskets” to each Veteran and their family.

To allow the Veterans' Food Drive to serve as many Veterans and their families as possible, requests will be limited to 1 per household. (Recipients/married spouses living at the same address will recieve 1 basket.) If multiple baskets are requested for by a single Veteran, family or address, all duplicate orders will be cancelled.

If a requestor has any questions, please send a message via the contact button at the bottom of the event page.

**Veterans must bring their DD-214 or equivalent and a photo ID
