These organizations include Partners Ending Homelessness, The Servant Center, Horsepower Therapeutic Riding Academy, Saving Grace K9s, high school ROTC units (Grimsley, Ragsdale, Southeast Guilford, Northeast Guilford, and Reidsville), and individual Marines in need.
On August 8, a check for $50,000 was presented to the Servant Center for the planned construction of a new Veterans Support Center in Greensboro on Glenwood Avenue. The new building will include 21 single rooms with private bathrooms, medical services, kitchen facilities for shared meals and a library.
