Aiding homeless veterans

The Korean War Veterans Chapter 188 has an ongoing project of helping homeless veterans in the area. The chapter does this through donations from its Rose of Sharon Campaign, which is held at local Publix locations. The chapter also supports the Resource & Recover for Homeless Veterans Organization, which furnishes and operates transitional housing for these men and women. The organization has a thrift store and transitional housing in Eustis. The objective is to help as many of the homeless veterans as possible who live in camps in the woods or in the Ocala National Forest. The chapter meets at the Lake David City Building in Groveland. For information about joining or meetings, contact Commander David Litz at 352.536.9022.
