VOA event helps homeless veterans

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – It has been estimated that there are 50,000 homeless veterans out on the streets right now.

With Memorial Day weekend right around the corner, Volunteers of America is hosting an annual event in downtown Lansing today to help our former troops.

Beginning at 10:00 this morning, you will see more than 40 agencies set up at the Adado Riverfront Park. Activities include health screenings, job assistance, haircuts, live music, lunch and more.

The event goes until 2:00 this afternoon.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
