Support Vets and Gold Star Families during COVID19

COVID-19 is impacting central Ohio veterans financially. Many of them depend on food pantries to have a single meal. Our Veterans need to know we hold them in exceptional esteem and that they are a national treasure to all Americans. Polaris Financial Partners will provide 700 Honey Baked® Ham Dinners, sides, a dessert from Eddie Merlot’s, and cookies and drinks from Costco to vets and Gold Star Moms.   On the 70th anniversary of Armed Forces Day we must give back to the men and women who fought for our freedom.  This will be a two-day event on May 15th and 16th. 


St. Francis DeSales High School Parking Lot Friday, May 15th from Noon to 4 pm

 Eddie Merlot’s Lot from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 16th.
