Veterans in need relegated to Industrial Parks
To all Friends and Supporters of Veterans,
PLEASE take the time to read the information below and check out the website to get the full story.
I cannot plead with you enough to read it all and spread it to ALL your contacts, e-mail addresses, send the link http://www.vfus.us/ to all and then call the Pittston Township Supervisors Adams, Rinaldi, and Marcellini on (570) 602-2071. Tell them to Respect the Service of the Veterans and REZONE the 4.62 acres so that we can continue to help our Brothers and Sisters who have given so much to the United States of America.
Pittston Township in NE Pennsylvania and some other local townships changed their zoning regulations so that Veterans are excluded from all areas of the townships other than Industrial areas. It doesn't just exclude Veterans but all transitional homes, aged care, shelters, etc. Therefore it is extremely urgent to obtain an exemption from the Zoning Regulationss or have the Supervisors rezone the 4.62 acres. This is about VETERANS.
We are trying to purchase a building previously operated as a 24 hour Veterinary Hospital which has been empty for 2.5 years. We raised the funds, proceeded with the planning to open the Freedom Café, House 10 Senior Veterans, Retrain Veterans in the Veterans Culinary Institute, House and Transition 20 Veterans in Need and employ 30+ Veterans.
The building is only 12 years old and the Veterinarian spent a million dollars on the inside and we can have this place operational within months. However, instead of me going on about these critical changes for Veterans, please check out: vfus.us or veteransgov.org to read the full story.
In the words of Sgt. Nate Chapman, The first Special Forces soldier killed in Afghanistan: "STAND UP AND DO SOMETHING".
Thanks for your Support of Veterans in Need.
