Marines Forest Hope and Pete Briggette of our Ways and Means Committee were instrumental in acquiring $2500 worth of healthy food and flyers about healthy nutrition for the Alachua County Veteran Stand Down on September 11, 2014.
Our members set up a table at the Honors Center where many other participants were also providing services and items for the homeless veterans. Marine Hope was joined by SrVice Commandant Vernon Kisling and Marine Bob Barnas.
The Gator Detachment intends to seek grants to continue this generous work in our community. We are thankful for the dedication and leadership of our Marines on this project.
