(BUSINESS WIRE)--Over Memorial Day weekend, while there were many tributes, backyard barbeques and pool parties, the local chapter of Veterans Support Organization took time to thank the staff of the Winder Walmart for their commitment to local veterans.
“Without the dedication of people like Chris, we would not be able to bring aid to so many of our local area veterans”
With the help of Walmart store #520 on Atlanta Highway in Winder, Georgia, the Georgia chapter of the Veterans Support Organization is able to help countless area veterans.
As a result, and to show their appreciation, Kelley Cassani and Chris Tullis, of the Veterans Support Organization, presented Chris Talley, operations manager of the Winder Walmart, with a plaque in recognition of his and the company’s ongoing support of the organization.
With Walmart’s permission, the Veterans Support Organization is able to raise funds at the Winder store. The organization’s fundraising efforts help them to provide ongoing assistance to local area veterans in need.
“Without the dedication of people like Chris, we would not be able to bring aid to so many of our local area veterans,” said Bill Mock, administrative director of the Georgia chapter of the Veterans Support Organization. “Walmart has been instrumental in our efforts in this area; their support is invaluable. We are extremely grateful.”
The Veterans Support Organization is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit that helps veterans who are homeless, or near homeless, organize a “path” to independent living. The organization has created and manages several programs that specifically address the emotional and financial needs of veterans.
The Veterans Support Organization currently operates in 11 states, including Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Texas. The organization plans to continue to open chapters in states that are not currently served.
