Once a month, Red Cross volunteers gather at the Spokane Veterans Home with one goal – to feed and visit with the veterans. An event that everyone looks forward to, Red Cross volunteers serve up BBQ food and take time out of their days to visit with the men and woman that fought for our country. It’s a few hours out of everyone’s month that creates a sense of unity – between young and old, men and women, veterans and volunteers. This event allows the Red Cross to continue to give back to these brave men and women in a small way, and hopefully, to brighten their days.
This event, and all the work the Red Cross does for our veterans, is the perfect opportunity to spread that gratitude year round.
