Adopt a Veteran & Jacket Drive
The Cherokee County Homeless Veteran Program, along with American Legion Auxiliary Unit 45, is pleased to announce the kickoff of the Cherokee County “Adopt a Veteran” program for the 8th year.
The Cherokee County Homeless Veteran Program, along with American Legion Auxiliary Unit 45, is also pleased to announce a partnership with Arrow Exterminators and the Georgia Pest Vets (3/16 Veteran Support Group) to collect and distribute 5,000 coats to homeless and low income Veterans as well as others in need ahead of this winter’s cold weather.
We are still on track to have our Breakfast with Santa event scheduled to be held Saturday, December 3rd from 9:30 to 1 at Canton American Legion Post located at 160 McClure Street in Canton. The breakfast is free and all Veterans are welcome to come and share some holiday cheer with other Veterans and their families.
