EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — House of Heroes CT and Easterseals’ Veterans Rally Point teamed up Saturday to provide food for over 70 Veterans during the coronavirus crisis.
The groups are not able to complete house projects for Veterans due to the pandemic, so they organized a food pickup for them.
The groups assembled nearly 2,000 pounds of food into boxes to feed around 100 Veterans. Each box contains enough non-perishable food to feed a Veteran for about one week. Girl Scouts of America also donated over 200 boxes of cookies to add to the boxes. Veterans were given shirts with American Flags on them as well.
Chairman of House of Heroes Connecticut Carol May said, “House of Heroes is very happy to be a part of this and to serve our veterans that might need an extra hand at this time of our lives.”
