Connecting Vets To Resources Set To Open In 2019

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Connecting Vets to Resources is set to open its doors at 3210 4th Ave. in 2019. 

Stacy Kehoe held a clothing drive in September through the support of the VFW Post 4848 on Amnicola Highway.  Ms. Kehoe said, “I contacted the post commander, William Robinson, with the idea of conducting a clothing drive for our veterans in need.  I have had several phone calls from various people wanting to donate their coats plus business-styled attire for future job interviews, and in general, nice clothing to me for wide distribution. In connecting with Mr. Robinson, we were able to hold the donations there until a central location could be established. “    

Several organizations have already made contact with Ms. Kehoe and have received some generous, clothing donations.

"It is with great pleasure for Connecting Vet to Resource to pause and reflect on the dedication and arduous work of Stacy Kehoe," said Vincent Spann, founder of Connecting Vets to Resources.  "Her vision for a clothing drive for homeless veterans and local citizens supporting the cause is what has led to this great achievement. 

"One of CV2R mission programs is to connect veterans to TECHFO resources, i.e., transportation, employment, clothing, housing, food and other resources.   Thanks to Ms. Kehoe, CV2R now has clothing to issue to veterans who need clothing and visit our vet center.  O

"Once we open our doors at 3210 4th Avenue, veterans will be afforded the opportunity to pick and choose from what we have on hand."
