Veterans’ service officers will also be on hand to inform area veterans and their survivors of any benefits and services they have earned and are entitled to. Bring a copy of your DD 214 or other discharge documents to receive this information.

Future pantry dates are Saturday, April 9; Saturday, May 14; and Saturday, June 11.
