MILITARY  MARKET 
2020 Veteran Events
 
 
Our lives have certainly changed in the past few months and Covid-19 is still a threat, especially to some of our Aging Veterans.
 
Military Market had 4 Military Events cancelled but we fortunately were able to finish our Winter distribution to the homeless in Southeast NC and also raised funds with our annual Rose sale.
 
We are beginning to reschedule some of our events beginning in July and will be done safely and at our discretion respecting CDC guidelines.
We encourage you to periodically check back to see status and listing of events.

Meanwhile here are some things that we have been doing since March.
 
1.) *** Every Sunday since April, we pack 50 to 60 bags with meals for the homeless in the Wilmington area. Since Covid closings, many have been unable to find places open for a meal. With the help of volunteers from Early Bread Ministry, these meals have been distributed around town to those in need.
We are committed to continue this at least through June 1st or until things begin to open up.
 
 
2.) *** Each week we also provide a meal to a 1st responder or healthcare provider we wish to thank and honor. To date we have honored the following organizations or groups:
 
1.) Brunswick County Sheriff's Dept.
2.) Wilmington Health 
3.) Leland Fire Dept.
4.) NHRMC Cancer Clinic
5.) Eugene Ashley House - Provided meals 3 times and donated over 100 masks for the residents.
 
 
 
 
 
 
*** Lastly on Saturday, May 16th,  11:00 to 3:00,
we sponsored our 1st  Neighborhood
