LYNCHBURG, Va. – Thanks to your help, one veterans group in Lynchburg is being nationally recognized for helping homeless service members.
They provide temporary shelter to homeless veterans as they wait to qualify and receive their benefits.
We’re told the prize money will go toward motel costs for the rest of this year.
The Hill City council was one of three finalists in the online contest.
“I was in total shock because one of the groups was located in North Texas and another group was in Colorado with large populations. I don’t know how we did it, but thanks to all the support. People love our veterans, love what we do, and we got the most votes,” said Tom Current, president of the Lynchburg Area Veterans Council.
It’s unclear how many votes the group received or won by.
A check will be presented at a later date.
