Non-Perishable Food Needed
FEMA and the Florida Department of Emergency Management have a hold on supplies right now that would supply the National Guard troops across the country. Plus, they are still trying to gear up for the remainder of the hurricane season. That makes us in need of food for our homeless veterans, and veterans in Need. Please help by donating Non- Perishable food and dry goods. Donations maybe dropped off in the box in front of the VMC.
