INDIANAPOLIS — An organization dedicated to serving veterans in need will be renaming its community center.
HVAF – which now stands for Helping Veterans and Families – supports Hoosier veterans who are homeless, or at risk of becoming so.
The Veterans Community Center is hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday, as it will thereafter be known as the Colonel Donald W. Moreau, Sr. Veterans Community Center. Colonel Moreau was the first CEO of the organization; he served in the military for 28 years.
At the Moreau Veterans Community Center, vets can get food and clothing, use a computer lab, and explore a library with Colonel Moreau’s personal collection. They can also access housing resources, hygiene products, and more.
As of now, about 250 people visit the food pantry every month. This number has grown significantly due to inflation.
If you would like to attend the ceremony Thursday, head to the downtown headquarters on North Pennsylvania Street at 5 p.m. There, you can learn more about the organization, tour the center, and enjoy refreshments. The ceremony will start outside – weather permitting – so you will want to bring layers.
Current CEO Emmy Hildebrand encourages you to bring food and clothing donations. She says non-perishable food items and new undergarments are much needed, as well as gently used clothing.
You can also donate funds to HVAF here.
