LifeCare Alliance volunteers got to work early Wednesday morning. They were determined to show appreciation to veterans on Veterans Day.

Fallen 15 pitched in as well. Fallen 15 is an organization that honors fallen service members. They also work with veterans in the community.

“So, we wanted to do what we could, in a safe, social distancing manner, where we can go out and support them and make sure the families are getting the food they need,” said Sarah Boreland, a Board Member of Fallen 15.
