Also in the year 2015 Veterans OutReach purchased a powerful nine quart food processor for pureeing our elderly veteran’s food at a coast of $3,900.

Filling the Gap
In order not to show preferential treatment Veterans OutReach offers their goods and services through the nursing facility to all of our veterans. Working with the staff of the home we are informed of the needs and then we endeavor to supply them. Therefore, those who are in dire need are supplied without suffering injury to their dignity. For personal contact our volunteers make regular visits to each of the residents to create a bond of friendship and to express our love, appreciation and respect for each of them.
