The Lakota based “Hunting with Heroes” program is gearing up for another hunt next month that will bring more Purple Heart Veterans to the area. Organizer Bernie Becker tells KLGA News one of the previous participants recently made a contribution to help raise awareness for what these soldiers are going through.
Becker says they are taking the display to one of their main sponsors this week.
Becker says the dates for this year’s hunt have been set.
Along with the weeklong hunt, the group has planned another drive thru event on November 11th to provide veterans with a Thanksgiving meal.
Becker says last year’s drive thru event was a huge success, almost too huge.
Becker says they plan on handing out 450 meals this year. If they go over that amount, Becker says they are prepared so no area veteran would go away empty handed. The drive thru event will be held on Veteran’s Day (November 11th) from 3-7 PM in Lakota.
