Vouchers for Veterans recently received a $5,000 donation from MVSB (Meredith Village Savings Bank) to support their efforts to provide Veterans in New Hampshire and Maine with food vouchers redeemable at local farmers markets.
“We are committed to giving back to our Veterans, and the voucher program allows us to show our appreciation by offering fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and other goods,” said Jeanne Grover, Vouchers for Veterans President. “The program has only continued to grow since we started in 2016 from the outpour of community backing we have received. We are incredibly thankful for local organizations such as MVSB who have supported our efforts.”
“MVSB recently joined the Rochester community with the opening our new branch and we are excited for opportunities to invest in our local communities,” said Jolene Whitehead, MVSB Branch & Business Development Manager. “We are proud to donate to this program as it not only gives back to those who have served, but it also benefits the local growers and farmers.”
Vouchers for Veterans is a Rochester-based nonprofit that sets up booths at participating local farmers markets where Veterans can receive and redeem their vouchers. Go to vouchersforveterans.org to learn more, donate or find a list of upcoming dates and locations.
