JROTC Gives Back, Helps Feed Homeless Veterans

Kiera Ashley Smith, Staff Writer

On April 7, 2017, Burke’s JROTC students helped feed hundreds of hungry veterans as part of Soldiers’ Angels Hunger Relief Program. The event, located at Johnson Hagood Stadium parking lot, was able to provide grocery bags of food for over 165 veterans.

Each veteran received three grocery bags full of food: 1 bag of fresh fruit, 1 bag of fresh vegetables, and 1 bag of meat. “They got enough food to last a week or so,” said freshman Nekira Mazyck.

“We had about 200 registrants, and about 165 of them made it out today,” said Sgt. Vanderhorst, JROTC instructor at Burke. “We were happy with the turnout.”

Volunteers for the event included approximately 20 JROTC cadets as well as over 30 volunteers from The Citadel, Lowcountry Food Bank and Soldier’s Angels.
