WCCQ and Whiskeyfist have teamed up to raise funds to support Caring Patriots NFP, Inc. in their mission to provide for Veterans in need. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need to support our Veterans has increased and the need for funds to fulfill those needs has increased as well. In addition, the ability to raise funds through our normal channels has been reduced substantially.
The Veterans' Food drive began in 2009 as a dream to help provide a Thanksgiving Meal to roughly 15 Veteran’s who would not have otherwise had one. In its‘ inaugural year, we were able to provide 109 Veterans and their families the means for a Thanksgiving meal they would not have had otherwise. Now, twelve years later the need has grown tremendously as our desire to help those who have served us has grown as well. We collaborate with businesses, clubs, schools, and churches to help us collect non-perishable food items that are then used to help assemble and provide approximately 6-8 grocery bags 'aka' “baskets” per Veteran and their families. The event has grown upwards of 1,000 local Veterans and their families and we need your help to accomplish this task. This year's challenges have caused us to expand our mission and require additional funding to accomplish our goals.
