VETERANS AWARENESS MONTH
Co-Sponsored by Brookhaven’s Veterans Association (BVA) and
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Mark your calendars! This month at
BNL we celebrate our veterans’ service
to our country, identify valuable free
resources for vets and remember those
who are less fortunate and have been
troubled by addictions and
homelessness. Start going through
your closets for gently used men’s
clothing, grooming supplies, used
furniture, self-help books, etc. to put
aside for our annual 1-1-1 fundraiser.
