A local group is raising money to purchase turkeys for veterans in need.

Veterans Non - Profit, (VNP), spokesperson Aldina Rosales said:

Our goal for the upcoming holiday is to get a head start raising funds to purchase enough turkeys to be able to provide at least one per clients family.  On average, we serve 200 individuals a month. While this would be amazing to raise, we know that it may not be possible and ... quite honestly ... even half of that number would be better than nothing. Last year, we gave out turkeys to (some of)  our clients on a "first come, first serve" basis. This year we are hoping that, since we're beginning to raise money well in advance, we'll be able to serve all of our clients.

VNP is a 501 (c) 3 organization so, business or individual donations are tax deductible and receipts will be provided. If you would like to donate money, turkeys or any other items; contact Aldina at (915) 487 - 3211 or by emailing areptxvetco@gmail.com. For more info on the VNP, click here.
