To never forget that when they need us, under no circumstances, will they be denied. To encourage our Veterans to unmask that silent voice and let them be heard.
We strive to:
Since the inception of this project, there has been an overwhelming response from the Veteran community. Listening to other Veterans, one theme emerged, instead of others telling them what they need, they wanted their own voice. That voice is the Veterans Association Food Bank. Veterans helping Veterans.
The Food Bank is a stepping stone to implementing and incorporating new initiatives that will benefit all Veterans. Some ideas we would like to implement in the future, include:
President - Greg Paul - United Nations, peace keeping pilot Veteran
(1st) Vice President - Dan McLean - Cold War, Air Force Veteran
(2nd) Vice President - Howard Leong- Infantry Veteran -Served in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan as a civilian
Treasurer- Pete Domshy - Veteran, 22 years with the PPCLI
Secretary - Laura Vanderkruk - Civilian passionate about helping Veterans
