The Warhorse Brotherhood MC and Low Country Harley-Davidson are partnering to support local veterans by hosting a Veterans Information Expo on Saturday, June 15.
“The goal of the event is to connect veterans to programs and services that will benefit them,” said Jennifer Oldal, Community Relations Manager of Low Country Harley-Davidson. “Instead of having to travel to different agencies on different parts of town, veterans will be able to talk to multiple representatives at one location.”
The event will offer veterans access to information about local, state and federal programs, as well as an opportunity to connect with the many non-profit organizations that service veterans.
The Warhorse Brotherhood MC, a veterans group, chose to cosponsor this event to follow the military credo. “We take care of our own,” said Randy Kent, club President. “We want veterans to know that whatever assistance or benefits they qualify for are neither a gift nor a handout. Veterans earned these benefits when they set aside a portion of their lives to stand in defense of their country.”
The event will be held on Saturday, June 15 from 11 am – 3 pm at Low Country Harley-Davidson (4707 Dorchester Rd). All veterans, current military and family members are invited to attend the free event. Lunch and entertainment will be provided.
If your non-profit organization supports veterans, you are invited to be a part of the event. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.lowcountryharley.com for more information.
