The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) held a Pinning Ceremony for AmeriCorps and Senior Corps members today at the Bob Gates Welcome Center in Shalimar, Florida. This ceremony honored veterans and those serving veterans and their families for their continued service in the community. Our Legacy Corps program recruits and trains volunteers to provide weekly respite relief to families of veterans in the Florida Panhandle. It gives the caregiver a break and allows time for errands, date nights, or just some time off while trying to keep the veteran in their own home as long as possible. Thank you to all our wonderful Legacy Corps volunteers for your selfless giving spirits, and Happy Veterans Day to all the families we serve!
