Veterans First and The Bascom Group, LLC Partner Again to Serve a Luncheon Honoring Orange County's Homeless and At-Risk Veterans
As our troops continue to deploy home and join the already 150,000 veterans in Orange County, The Bascom Group, LLC has partnered with Veterans First to kick off Veteran's Day weekend. They will be providing a ‘Thank You For Your Service' meal honoring Orange County's veterans on Friday, Nov. 9, 2012 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Veterans First Service Center, located at 1540 E. Edinger Ave. in Santa Ana, Calif.
“We are extremely thankful for our country's active military personnel and veterans, as well as their dedicated families. In honor of the upcoming Veterans Day celebration, we would like to show them our appreciation by serving them for a change, hopefully setting precedence for years to come,” said David Kim, Managing Partner of the The Bascom Group.
These veterans will be treated to a luncheon with the help of the Tustin Roadhouse of Orange County, Calif. “Tustin Roadhouse is proud to be working with Bascom and Veterans First to provide our Veterans a first class meal,” said Tim DeCinces, founder of Beach Pit BBQ and Tustin Roadhouse. Employees of The Bascom Group will be volunteering their time to serve and prepare a tasty meal for our veterans as a symbol of their appreciation to individuals who dedicated their lives to serving our nation, as well as the families that stood by them.
“When representatives of The Bascom Group first approached us in 2011 about this partnership, we were very excited and thankful,” said Deanne Tate, President/CEO for Veterans First. “This is a great opportunity to show our growing at-risk veteran population of men and women that the community supports them and together we can make a difference in their lives through the programs and services we offer.”
