2021 SGVHV gives away 500 Thanksgiving Bags w/Turkeys

Rate this item
(1 Vote)

Star Group Veterans Helping Veterans gave away more than 500 turkeys and bags which included all the trimmings during its annual Thanksgiving Basket distribution. 

Due to COVID-19 precautions, the number of people inside the group’s headquarters was limited to Sponsors, Representatives from area community organizations and Special Invited Guest only; instead like in past years when all the actual 500 families would come to pick up their baskets. 

Each person entering the building underwent Covid protocol. 

Mayor Diaz welcomed everyone to Copperas Cove and said SGVHV was the fabric of the City of Copperas Cove and helps not only Veterans but the entire Community. 

Star Group-Veterans Helping Veterans received several donations on the distribution day as well. The Fort Hood Area Association of Realtors presented the group with a check for $5,500 which Ms Timmons indicated was very much appreciated and needed due area food shortage and pricing increases. She indicated SGVHV had a scare when they were unable to get the turkeys and food items due to the food shortage. But Ms Timmons said “God always prevails” and they were able to fulfill their mission. 

After the presentations and donations, Star Group-Veterans Helping Veterans Vice President Mr. John Robertson handed the first “official” Thanksgiving bag to CCISD Representative Shelly Brown who passed it to Killeen ISD Representative JJ to represent the partnership between Copperas Cove and Killeen and shows no division between the city’s.  

The turkeys and bags were distributed with CCISD receiving 60 bags and Killeen ISD (which covers Killeen, Harker Heights and Nolanville) receiving 150 bags to go to students within HARP. Also distribution was done through area non-profits and veteran organizations.

Each family received a turkey plus a bag with corn, green beans, cranberry sauce, yams, cornbread mix, cake mix, frosting, gravy mix and rice. 

But none of this would be possible without the Star Group Veterans Team Members and Mr Robertson and Mr Mitchell who took the lead on this Event. Mr Mitchell ind he had some awesome SGVHV Members who helped all the way, from purchasing, picking up food, putting together bags and the actual distribution. Again SGVHV shows it takes a Team!
