‘VA 2K Walk + Roll’ to Benefit Maine’s Homeless Veterans [AUDIO – LIVE BROADCAST]

Susie Wittington & Renee Nelson

The ‘Moose is Loose’ this Wednesday (May 21) at the annual ‘VA 2K Walk & Roll’ at the VA Medical Center – Togus, Augusta. It’s sponsored by the VA Maine Healthcare Systems to raise awareness of the needs of Maine’s homeless veterans and to support employee health and wellness. It’s estimated that at any given time there are more than 100 homeless veterans in Maine, suffering from lack of a place to live and other basic necessities. This is a great, fun way you can help.

The opening ceremony will begin at 11:00 am at the Gazebo, at the rear of the campus. There will be a cash barbecue, dunk tank, music, adaptive bikes for use, a health fair, an ice cream social and other activities.

Donations will be accepted to help support homeless veterans as they transition from a shelter, vehicle or encampment into housing. New household items, such as coffee makers, small kitchen appliances, bedding, kitchenware, towels and blankets will be appreciated. Gift cards (gas, phone, food, etc.) are always a great donation.
