KVB’s Supply Drive for Vets reaches its final week

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The month of December is a time of giving.

However, the Kentucky Veterans Brigade didn’t wait until then.

On September 8th, the KVB kicked off its inaugural Backpacks for Vets Supply Drive.

Until December 8th, donations of cash or protein-based items are being accepted.

President of KVB Bob Wilson started the organization with his friend Tim Allen.

Together, they aim to serve the homeless veterans in our community.

Wilson is a veteran himself, serving for 27 years.

Now, he wishes to only give back to those who have given so much for our freedoms.

This year is the KVB’s first large supply drive.

They’ve already received 20 dozen gloves as one of its largest donations.

However, there are still items needed.

A full list of those items is in the image at the top of the article.

Per Wilson, all canned goods donated should have an easy-to-open tab.

This marks the final week of the supply
