VETERANS AND FAMILY SUPPORT

2022-2023 Chairman ~ Doris 'Dee' Ippolito
 
This program includes assistance to veterans who are not in hospitals or nursing homes, and to Military families. It includes financial assistance, bringing meals to shut-ins, and providing support during times of illness and bereavement. It can involve driving people to the doctor's office or to church, mowing their lawn, helping with shopping, or any type of assistance. It also includes support for the Military, such as funding or donating to the National Military Services fund, adopting a Unit, or providing assistance to Military families.
