This morning more than 50 Eggleston employees and supporters gathered to enjoy fellowship, networking and a delicious breakfast provided by our friends at A-Mayes-N-Soul Food Inc., in Norfolk!
Everyone left will full hearts and belly’s as old friends and new enjoyed the appreciation and camaraderie that can only come from another Veteran – and those who truly appreciate the sacrifices made by our military.
Paul Atkinson, CEO and Denny Wance, Board Chair – who is a Veteran – both spoke a few words and shared their appreciation of everyone’s service. Warrior Bridge Program Manager, Tim Giles also shared his appreciation and thanked some of our guests from Mission United and The Veterans Affairs office for their attendance.
Tim also rolled out a new initiative titled: Wheels 2 Work, which will help one worthy veteran obtain transportation to help him or her in their desire to get to work! Any veteran with a disability who lives in Hampton Roads will be eligible and can be nominated by a friend, family member or colleague. They can also self-nominate! Applications will be accepted for this program through December 31, 2019, and the winner will be announced in January of 2020!
