large-group-photoThank you to our community volunteers for joining us to honor our area veterans!  We were able to provide food bags for 100 local veterans.

It takes a community to make a project successful and Compass Community Health utilized that model when they honored area veterans Friday. Volunteers from many local organizations including RSVP, Compass Community Health, the Ohio Valley Chapter of the Red Cross, Ohio State University Extension Office, Shawnee State University’s Rotaract Club, Kathleen Young Southeastern Ohio liaison for Governor John Kasich’s Office, Congressman Bill Johnson, Pleasant Green Baptist Church, United States Daughters of 1812, the Portsmouth City Health Department, ADAHMS Board, Community Action Organization, Potters House Food Pantry and others, distributed donated food items to more than 115 local veterans in honor of Veterans Day.
