VFW food distribution set for Friday
Published 11:05 am Monday, May 8, 2023
VFW Post 2166 Auxiliary is doing a food distribution with Second Harvest Food Bank for veterans and their families that need assistance on Friday, May 12, at 2 p.m. This will be held at the VFW Post at 2001 West Elk Ave., Elizabethton. Those coming to the food distribution are asked to have room in their trunk for the food box and to pop their trunk once they arrive in the line at the post. They can remain in their car and the food box will be loaded for them. The food distribution will be done with no person to person contact to protect each person’s health.
Second Harvest has requested we provide them with an approximate number of food boxes needed so please call David Batchelder at the Carter County Veterans Service Office at 542-1824 to sign up if you plan to come for the food distribution. This will help ensure there is adequate food available.
Also, VFW Post 2166 and the Post Auxiliary are having their 4th Annual Golf Classic presented by the LaPorte family on Friday, May 26, at the Elizabethton Golf Course. Come out and support the VFW and our community support programs. Call David at 542-1824 to register a team or sponsor a hole.
