“The funds we’ve raised are going to make an incredible impact,” said Jock Pitts, President and CEO of People Working Cooperatively. “These are men and women who have served this country honorably and courageously, but came home and fell on hard times because of an injury, a disability or other unfortunate circumstances. We are astounded by the support we’ve received from the community, and proud to be able to provide these critical services to our local veterans.”
