At St. Anthony’s, every day is Veterans Day. Nearly one in four of the 3,000 meals we serve in the Dining Room every day is served to a veteran. We serve the soldiers who served in seven wars, dating as far back as World War II. Veterans, like many people in need, rely on an open door at St. Anthony’s, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. For the men and women who have given so much to our country, we honor their service by giving back to them.
On Friday, November 11th, St. Anthony’s will join forces with Craig Newmark of craigslist.org; the Department of Veterans Affairs; Elie Levy, the President and CEO of Planet Sox; and Chrome Shoes company to provide every veteran who eats at St. Anthony’s with a new pair of socks and shoes.
We invite you to join us in our pledge to honor the service of all veterans by donating socks, shoes, or cash to ensure St. Anthony’s continues to walk together with our brothers and sisters in need.
