(WFRV) – As military veterans return home from combat, some may have a hard time transitioning out of service. But one local business is hoping to make an impact on those who gave so much.
Great Lakes Roofing Corp along with Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin is hosting a supplies drive to help military veterans as they return home. Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin, based in Racine, runs a village of 15 tiny homes for military veterans transitioning out of, or at risk of homelessness after returning home from service. While they run a village, they also have a food market and provide programming for the veterans.

- Canned or dry goods
- Noodles, soup, tuna, beans, fruit, rice
- K Cups
- Cereal, pancake mix
- Read to make meals (no ramen)
- New tupperware
- New Sheets or Towels
- Socks and underwear
