New Program seeks to help Clay Veterans

Program serves low income, homeless and at-risk rural veterans

The Reaching Rural Veterans Initiative is a new effort that will help address the needs of veterans in Clay County. Started by the VHA Office of Rural Health and working with the Military Research Institute at Purdue University in Indiana, the VA Office of Faith-Based Initiatives, the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service and The Remnant Bread of Life Church and Food Pantry in Manchester this program desires to help our veterans.

Greta Raleigh, Program Director at the Remnant Food Pantry said, “We just want our veterans and their families to know we care about them. We are here to pray with them, assist them with food, or just sit and talk if that’s what they need or want. We want to say thank you to all of our veterans for their service and the sacrifices that they and their families have made.”

If you are a veteran or know a veteran in Clay County please come by the food pantry or call for more information. They are located at 1 Fayette Properties Suite 1-E or call 606-598-8888 for more information. A day has been set aside each month for just veterans and their families. Come and be a part of this new program.

The program was recently featured on WYMT-TV
