WHEN: Sunday, Oct. 13 at 12-noon
WHERE: Veterans Haven, 202 Spring Garden Rd, Winslow, 08095
DETAILS: New Jersey has among its homeless population an estimated 7,000 to 8,000 veterans of the United States Armed Forces. Our nation and our State, grateful for its hard won freedom and democracy, owes a special debt to veterans. That there are so many falling through the gaps in our society is a call to action. We must restore dignity and purpose to those who so unselfishly laid their lives on the line for our country.
