On May 16, the Blue Goose of Mid-Missouri had a social event with the focus being remembrance and tribute to Veterans.
Speakers: Angela Drake and Laws Students from the University of Missouri School of Law – Veterans Clinic
Angela Drake, the supervising attorney for the MU School of Law Veterans Clinic was our guest speaker and shared information about the program she has established at MU’s Law School. Her program has helped countless of Veterans with obtaining benefits and has been receiving notable recognition within our community as well as colleges all over the United States. Some of Angela’s students who, are also Veterans, also shared about their personal experiences about the program. Click here to read about this program in the Columbia Business Times.
Donation Drive to benefit Welcome Home, Inc.
In addition to the speakers, we had a drive to collect donation items which will be provided to Welcome Home Inc., a local organization which assists homeless Veterans. We collected $295 in cash donations at the event and over $250 in good. Thank you all for your generosity. More information can be found at welcomehomelessveterans.org.
