Caring Patriots is a local non-profit, all-volunteer organization that provides veterans with much needed food for the holiday season. 

In previous years, Caring Patriots partnered with businesses, clubs, schools, churches and other organizations to collect and pack non-perishable food items. In light of COVID this year, veteran recipients will receive shopping experiences at designated Jewel grocery storeis so that they can do their own shopping and get the items they specifically need.

Why is this mission so important? Founder Mike Cozzi told us, "There are veterans who have served in past and current conflicts that do now have the same means to provide right now, that we do ... we're here to show our gratitude and support!"

Caring Patriots is currently soliciting for veterans who need help, donations to continue giving along with volunteer time below >>>>
