Legion Family to continue community service projects

American Legion Family members will converge Aug. 23 to help with lawn care, general gardening and yard cleanup at the Vista Center/Warman Houses in Indianapolis. The community service project is something the Legion Family has done annually for years during the national convention.

Warman Houses are made up of 45 units, and house many of Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation’s (HVAF) veterans. They serve as transitional housing units for the veterans, as a way for them to have shelter while receiving help from HVAF’s case managers.

HVAF houses, supports and advocates for all veterans and their families to help them achieve the best quality of life. In 2018, they served more than 1,200 veterans through their multiple programs and services: case management, housing, employment and pantry.

Activity begins at 8:30 a.m. and will go until around noon.
