STAFFORD, Texas – The transition from military to civilian life can be challenging, both emotionally and financially.
But local organizations are working together to help our veterans.
At an event in Stafford on Friday, more than 1,000 suits were collected for Camp Hope, a donor-driven facility for veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
The clothing, from sport coats to ties and shoes, will all be used by veterans applying for jobs.
Donors were treated to a free plate of food from Republic Bar-B-Que, one of the event's organizers, and Congressman Dan Crenshaw was also on hand.
It’s a Houston kind of day — whether it’s a response to a devastating storm, a global crisis, or taking care of our Veterans, no place does it like HOUSTON!
