Area Residents Step Up for Moving Veteran’s Forward

–Moving Veterans Forward hosted a pair of successful fundraisers last week, in conjunction with Veteran’s Day on Friday. The first event was the 2nd annual Chili Cookoff/Soup Supper fundraiser at the Algona VFW Hall, and Co-Founder John Emswiler tells KLGA News the event was a huge success 


Emswiler says they had some stiff competition for top honors on the night. 

Emswiler says they are already making plans to host another contest next year.  

Several of the Moving Veteran’s Forward volunteers were on hand at KLGA Friday during a live fundraiser, which raised over $12,000 in six hours. That money will help in their efforts to assist veterans as they transition back into civilian life. You can learn more about Moving Veteran’s Forward by checking out their Facebook Page.
