Study of New Hampshire veterans spurs drive to help them
Soon after, the students made 150 thank-you cards for area veterans. About half of those cards were given out to veterans attending the high school's Veterans Day Breakfast last month.
As part of Harbor Homes' Veterans FIRST Transitional Housing program, the Dalianis House, along with three other facilities around the state, assists veterans and their families for up to two years, giving them the chance to pursue employment, fight substance abuse and further their education in a safe, supportive environment.
"They needed pots and pans, they needed blankets and sheets," he said. "Things that most of us take for granted."
Support for the collection quickly grew, with dozens of students, teachers and staff members jumping in to lend a hand.
"It became quite the community effort," Sampson said. "Just a wonderful whirlwind of support that doesn't seem to be slowing down."
Harbor Homes President Peter Kelleher said that as the program continues to grow, so does the need for donations.
"None of our programs would be possible without the support and generosity of community members," Keller said.
Those who wish to donate goods to the Dalianis House may contact Sampson at email@example.com. For more information on the Veterans FIRST program, visit www.harborhomes.org/veterans-first.
