October Service Project - Honoring Veterans

September 16, 2021
By Sloan Mahoney

On October 1st, Andrean football honored veterans during a home game with various special services throughout the event. The game marked the beginning of our service project for October, where we will continue to honor veterans.

 

The Andrean Theology department has partnered with Veterans Affairs, a group that helps homeless Veterans by providing household goods. Often, vets are placed in housing even though they lack the essential household items needed. We will be hosting a drive for this cause and collecting housewear items. The drive will begin October 1st and end October 29th, 2021. Items that can be donated include:
