Community Action Sunday
February 2014 Second Sunday Collection: New England Center for Homeless Veterans
On February 9, Community Action Sunday, all contributions to the collection--unless otherwise specified--will go to the New England Center for Homeless Veterans (NECHV).
KC members and friends are cordially invited to attend our annual CAC lunch at the Parish House following Morning Prayer on Sunday, February 9, Community Action Sunday. We will offer a simple lunch with guests from CACâ€™s newest community partner, the New England Center for Homeless Veterans, our neighbor on Court Street. The lunch speaker will be Stephen Cunniff, who has been Director of Community Affairs at the Center for the past ten years. Steve will tell us about NECHV, which provides temporary shelter, transitional housing, career assistance, and other services to men and women who have served in the U.S. military. He will be joined by some veterans who have benefited from the Centerâ€™s services, hopefully including our own KC member, Grady Jones, a former NECHV client who now works there as a manager. Steve will share how we can get involved as volunteers at NECHV... serving meals, helping with resumes, teaching computer skills... or contributors.
Along with the NECHV speaker, we look forward to welcoming guests from the NECHV including Grady Jones, who is known to many of us as a member of King's Chapel. Grady works full-time at NECHV as Veterans Logistics Supervisor, overseeing all the needs of the 300 + veterans who call the Center â€œhomeâ€ on a given night. Originally from New Jersey, Grady is a veteran of the US Army.
