A statewide veteran homelessness outreach campaign will kickoff in Branson this month.

According to a press release from the VFW Department of MO Homeless Veterans Committee, the event, a year in the making, will be the first of several in communities across the state.

The fall council meeting will be held in Branson on Sept. 28. Prior to the meeting, the attendees will pack 100 kits with care and comfort items specifically for homeless veterans called “Comfort Rucks.”
