Every Day is Veterans Day

November 10, 2014

Veteran SupportAlthough Veterans Day is not until Nov. 11, we here at Americans Helping Americans® work to provide assistance every day to those who have sacrificed to serve their country in the most patriotic way possible – through military service – in their time of need.

That includes shipping to our partner organizations hundreds of food boxes packaged specifically for veterans and containing enough non-perishable items such as canned soup, stew, fruits and vegetables, dried beans, rice and instant potatoes to help them get through the month.

Caring Hands Ministries in Cleveland, Georgia, and Come-Unity Cooperative Care in London, Kentucky, are among our partners who distribute the food boxes to veterans received through Americans Helping Americans®.

At Of One Accord, our partner in Rogersville, Tennessee, we were pleased to be able to be on hand this spring as they delivered meals to dozens of veterans – something they do on a daily basis to ensure the veterans in their community have at least one, hot, filling delicious “southern-style” home-cooked meal every weekday.

In addition to food, Americans Helping Americans® is proud to partner with numerous nonprofit organizations in Appalachia to repair roofs, fix floors, install new bathrooms and build handicap ramps for veterans to make their lives in their golden years much easier.
