Longwood Foundation Donates To Veteran Outreach


People’s Place has announced that it recently received a $35,175 donation from the Longwood Foundation to support its Veterans Outreach Program. The generous grant was used to purchase a 2012 replacement 12-passenger van that will transport Veterans who are participants of the Program. The Veterans Outreach Program provides free, door-to-door transportation for all Veterans residing in southern Delaware, with a focus on transportation from rural areas to specific destinations. Since 1989, the Program has helped Delaware Veterans access state and federal benefits, including medical care, treatment, housing, job placement, counseling, and emergency shelter.
