Throughout the year, and especially on Veterans Day, the YMCA of Chilton County supports veterans and their families with programs and initiatives that improve their well-being and provide opportunities to connect with each other. On Nov. 10, the Y will have a Mobile Veteran Center on site to offer services and a free meal to all veterans.

“While families across our community experience food insecurity, veterans who served in the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are twice as likely to be food insecure compared to the general population, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs,” said Lori Patterson, CEO, YMCA of Chilton County. “We are excited to collaborate with the VA Moblie Vet Center this Veterans Day week to not only show appreciation to our community’s veterans for their service, but to ensure they are connected to resources they may need for their own health and for the well-being of their families.”

The YMCA of Chilton County is one of 75 YMCAs nationwide selected to offer the Mobile Vet Center opportunity through a partnership between YMCA of the USA and the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
