The “Boot on the Ground” silent auction will run through midnight on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. Winners will be contacted by telephone.
Voices for Veterans assists hundreds of North Olympic Peninsula veterans, many needy or homeless, every year and sponsors several “veterans stand downs” around the Peninsula to provide free services ranging from clothing and bedding to haircuts and employment aid.
For more information, contact Tony Cook at Voices for Veterans, 360-928-9477 or email@example.com.
“I hope this is a highly successful fundraiser because the veterans we help deserve it,” said Cook, an Army vet who served in Vietnam in 1966-67.
