Veterans Expo

Saturday, January 6, 2018 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

First Annual Collier County Veterans Expo will include vets' families

Homeless United States military veterans and their families will be the focus Saturday, Jan. 6 of the first of what is expected to become an annual expo in Collier County.

Goodwill SWFL is partnering with several area non-profit agencies to organize the event, scheduled from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at New Hope Ministries, 7675 Davis Blvd. in Naples.

More than 50 vendors and service organizations for veterans and their families will offer free assistance and serve brunch to the veterans and their families. 

"Lee County has done similar programs and is lending a hand in helping Collier County organize its first such event," said Dwight Powell, Goodwill's Veterans Outreach Manager, who is overseeing the event. 

In addition, Goodwill is providing its Mobile Job-Link van as one of the expo vendors. For more information, contact Powell at DwightPowell@GoodwillSWFL.org
