Veterans Affairs not only includes working with local organizations to help find shelter or permanent housing for homeless vets, but also helping to get them counseling, meals, clothing, and other basic needs. The Chapter is not equipped to do this on our own so we are developing a network of other concerned community volunteer service organizations. The resultant synergy helps us all!
We are blessed to have such wonderful food at our monthly luncheons. After each luncheon the food from the buffet that we couldn’t possibly finish, the Columbia boxes up for us so we can share with those in need. After July’s luncheon, Paula Stewart, with the help of Reggie Williams and Geoff Harrington, ensured that the rest of the buffet was distributed to the homeless near her church in downtown Tampa. Let us always remember those less fortunate than us.
