2016 Veterans Expo

On Wednesday August 24th, WorkOne partnered with Terre Haute VFW Post 972 to host the 5th annual Veteran's Expo.

The Expo brought over 30 vendors to one location with the goal of serving our local Veterans.  This year's vendors included organizations that provide services for Veterans, local Colleges and Universities and employers with job opportunities.

Sandwiches, chips and drinks were provided for all who attended.

Congressman Larry Bucshon (IN-8) also stopped by the Expo to speak with Veterans, Service Providers and Employers.

In addition to the great connections made during the event, a silent auction featuring items donated by local merchants was held.  The auction raised $1348 for REACH Services (formerly UCP).  The donation will help REACH provide services to homeless veterans.

After the event students from the Terre Haute North and Terre Haute South JAG classes helped clean up the VFW Post.

Thank you to everyone who helped serve our Veterans with another great Expo!
