Local group reaching out for veterans
Organizations and students on the University of Florida campus had the opportunity to give back to veterans today in honor of the upcoming holiday. The Americans for Prosperity Organization held a Veterans Day Drive to help homeless veterans in Alachua County. Americans for Prosperity Vice President Courtney Enright says this is a great way for people to do their part.
The donated items will go to the HONOR center which houses and helps rehabilitate homeless veterans in our community.
