VETERANS EMPOWERMENT
Supply Collection Project and Veterans Day!

The mission of the Veterans Empowerment Organization is “To enhance the quality of life for homeless veterans on their road to self-sufficiency.”

Roswell Rotary has committed to serving these veterans through the VEO. We are providing the support to VEO and its veterans this year in lieu of our traditional “Adopt-a-Platoon” project and Honor Air flight. As you have heard over this last couple of weeks, there are three immediate opportunities to volunteer and serve.

SUPPLIES COLLECTION - NOVEMBER 1 AND 8

We are collecting needed supplies over the next 2 weeks at Rotary to support the veterans. Supplies needed include:

§Personal Hygiene - toothbrushes, bar soap, body wash, shampoo, razors, shaving cream/gel, foot powder, and lotion.

§Clothing - undershirts, boxer briefs, scarves, knit caps, gloves, and socks.

§Household items - Toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates, plastic ware, paper napkins, all manner of cleaning supplies for kitchen and bathroom

VETERANS DAY PARADE - NOVEMBER 10

We are invited to walk with the veterans in the parade in downtown Atlanta. Parade walkers need to meet at Roswell Area Park at 7:30 at Community Activity Building parking lot. Please contact Dave Wash to participate.

VETERANS DAY BARBEQUE - NOVEMBER 10

We are supplying drinks for a Veterans Day Barbeque at the VEO at 373 West Lake Avenue, Atlanta after the parade. We need volunteers to get the drinks to the BBQ, help serve the lunch and clean up. Please contact Dave Wash to volunteer.
