Each year, Merakey holds a special event during the week of Veterans Day to honor over 200 Veterans in our programs and the Veteran staff that work in those programs. This year, COVID-19 made one large in-person celebration impossible. However, despite the challenges faced, each individual site held their own Veterans Day party.
One celebration was held at Merakey Veterans Safe Haven and was catered by Mission BBQ, a Veteran owned business. Veterans enjoyed a great meal, as well as the camaraderie of each other’s company and stories about their service. Merakey staff were very happy to have had the opportunity to thank the Veterans for their service, and to show that Veterans Day is recognized as a special day across the organization.
