The United Way and The Helen Ross McNabb Center are teaming up to provide housing for Vietnam Veterans who need help. This is a privately funded operation with little or no help from the government. The program will provide 23 new apartments just for veterans in Knoxville.
There is still a need for $75,000 to finish up the project. They are looking for donations to get the job completed so the veterans can start moving in by December. If you would like to donate to this worthy cause click here.
Veterans should help their fellow veterans who have fallen on hard times so please donate what you can.
