The Georgia Veterans Education Career Transition Resource (VECTR) Center is preparing to serve hundreds of local veterans free food during its Veterans Appreciation Event on Tuesday, November 10, 2020, at 1001 Armed Forces Boulevard beginning at 10am.
Food, care bags, and other giveaways will be available to the first 300 veterans in attendance. In adherence to local and state guidelines for social distancing, the event will be mobile.
Attendees are asked to remain in their vehicle as Center employees and volunteers distribute goods.
“Local businesses have come together to express their gratitude to our local veterans,” said Ret. Col. Patricia Ross, Chief Operating Officer of the Georgia VECTR Center. “We realize many of our veterans cannot celebrate the day in a traditional manner, so we are doing our first drive-thru, contactless, veteran celebration.”
Veteran status of attendees will be verified by staff. For more information call, 478-218-3900.
