Food drive benefits veterans

Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) - No one should go hungry, especially those who have sacrificed for their country. You can help our local veterans by participating in an annual food drive this weekend.

The food drive starts Saturday and kicks off with a motorcycle ride starting at 10 a.m. at the Grand Junction Vet Center. This drive, which is collecting canned and non-perishable food items, runs through Dec. 3.

Organizers say the 3rd Annual Food Drive to Support Local Veterans has been very successful in helping to feed struggling veterans and their families.

The Grand Junction Vet Center provides free re-adjustment counseling and outreach to all vets and their families. The GJ Vet Center is located at 2472 F Road, Unit 16 in Grand Junction.
