8th Annual Chattanooga Veteran’s Center Food Drive Feeding Veterans

Chattanooga, TN (WDEF): It’s important to make sure those who served our country have enough to eat this holiday season.

To that end, the 8th Annual Chattanooga Veteran’s Center Food Drive was held today.

They gave out turkeys, boxed meals, and canned goods to local veterans.

The veteran center gave out more than one hundred and sixty meals last Christmas.

There goal is to feed that and more this holiday season.

Kevin Baker, Veteran Outreach Program Specialist says, “It’s very successful and we find that it’s an easy way to help our veterans during Christmas time…A lot of times they are breaking down into tears. They didn’t realize that we were doing this for them. And, it’s just to help during Christmas time.”

Monetary donations are accepted at the Chattanooga Veteran’s Center.
