GENESEO – The Livingston Country Club’s seventh annual golf tournament delivered thousands of dollars for veterans in dire need of help.
VFW Post 5005 and American Legion Post 271 presented the Veterans Outreach Center (VOC) with $6,000 raised by golfers at the Oaks Country Club on Rte. 20A in Geneseo on June 26.
“It’s something we’re always glad to do and we get to have fun doing it,” said Dennis Staley, member of the VFW and American Legion and recent inductee into the NYS Veterans Hall of Fame. “The weather danced around us and it turned out to be a good day.”
Among their day-to-day programs, the VOC helps veterans get the food they and their families need, help with medical or mortgage bills, and can help veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) improve their mental health.
