Good News for Veterans Who Need Food for Thanksgiving Dinner
The good work that Maine Veterans Project does continues.
This is the result from the recent food drive at Cole Land Transportation Museum, where they filled a pair of Jeeps that were inside the museum. They had fun with it and donors placed their non perishables in either the Jeep. One for Navy, Marines and Coast Guard. The other Army, Air Force, Space Force.
Mission Accomplished. And now, if you are a veteran and need a reusable cloth grocery bag full of non perishables you are in luck.
This Monday, November 21st the bags of food will be distributed from the MVP office which is at 207 Parkview Avenue in Bangor.
The pick up hours for veterans will be 9 a.m. until Noon that day only.
And because it takes a village, a USMC Veteran named Alan Craig Beatty has stepped up to lead a turkey drive with the goal of getting 40 turkeys donated.
You can donate a frozen turkey at an in-person event by Alan on Sunday the 20th from Noon to 4 p.m. at The Hampden Rec Center.
Or connect to a pay pal account set up for the purpose to raise cash to buy the needed turkeys.
