Members of the Italian American Heritage Club of Sussex County recently presented supplies and toiletries to staff at Home of the Brave in Milford for military veteran residents, along with a surprise Italian meal of baked ziti and garlic bread.
The Home of the Brave mission is to reduce homelessness among the military veteran population. In addition to providing transitional housing, food and security, it assists with employment, counseling services, healthcare access, transportation and locating affordable housing. Its goal is to help veterans successfully transition into permanent housing and personal independence.
Club members making the delivery included Katharine Dowell, Marian Parisi, Abbe Barbato, Jason Farulla and Tina Donofrio. Membership information for anyone who is Italian or of Italian descent is available via email to [email protected].
