The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center will distribute pre-packaged Thanksgiving dinner meal kits to Veterans in need from 1 pm to 4 pm on Saturday, November 21st, 2020 in the parking lot behind the medical center at 109 Bee Street in downtown Charleston.
Veterans are asked to pre-register and see if they qualify for this event by texting FOOD843 to (843) 459-9500 or by visiting this website. Veterans must also bring a VA or Military ID with them for pick-up.
“This is so important right now because we know families are struggling,” Margaret Bradbury, Charleston VAMC Chief of Nutrition and Food Service, said. “We are so grateful for everything our Veterans have sacrificed for us. This is one small way to show our gratitude during the holiday season and give our Veterans an opportunity to have all the items they need to cook a Thanksgiving meal for family or friends.”
Charleston VAMC is able to host this event through generous donations from Project Street Outreach, Lowes, North Palm Church, Tri County Veterans Support Network, Favor Foundation and Barbering Plus.
