Fleet Reserve makes donation to veterans home

July 25, 2014

Show Me Branch 32 of the Fleet Reserve Association has decided to disband. The branch graciously donated $300 to the West Central Missouri Veterans Assistance League on July 24. Their donation will make them a bronze sponsor for the Run for Freedom set for Sept. 27 at the Missouri Veterans Home in Warrensburg. The proceeds from this year’s run will go towards the purchase of a new handicapped-accessible bus to transport veterans who live at the home to a variety of outings. Two hundred veterans, ranging in age from 45 to 101, live at the home.
