On Saturday November 21, 2020 from 10am -2pm, Natick AMVETS Post #79 and Camp Arrowhead, American Veterans Recreation Association will be conducting our 7th Annual “Turkeys for Vets” event to simply say ‘THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE’ to the Veterans of the Greater Metro-West region. As the number of Veterans continues to increase so does the financial requirements to successfully run this annual event. We ask for your support for this event and share in giving back to our local Veterans.
During the last 7 years we have been able to provide holiday meals to over 1,600 local Veterans and their families. This annual event was initially piloted as a good faith gesture for our local Veterans. We have discovered in recent years that this gesture is not only a way to say thank you to our Veterans, but serves also as a mechanism to check in with our Veterans and their families to determine if any other assistance may be required. This year we expect the number of Veteran recipients to increase due to the challenges presented by the CO-VID 19 pandemic.
This event is managed by volunteers and 100% of all donations will go to support Veterans.
