BENEFITING: DRYHOOTCH OF AMERICA INC
EVENT DATE: Aug 10, 2015
Operation Mobile Dryhootch is in full force! We are busy every day serving veterans and their family members at our brick and mortar Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) in Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago...but we know we can reach more veterans if we go find them in the community.
We are determined to venture outside of the walls of our Dryhootch Coffee Shops and find veterans in the community. We already have a Mobile Canteen that we use as our "Coffee Shop on Wheels". However, its needs a new generator before it will be ready to roll again. We are also taking our old school bus out of storage and converting it into a Mobile FOB so we can reach veterans and family members off the grid.
Our Mobile Canteen and Mobile FOB will allow us to do exactly that...venture into the community and help veterans. Our vision is to transform our old school bus into a FOB on wheels with a comfortable meeting space for veterans, computers with internet access, and of course, coffee too!!! We will be able to "roll" up to community events such as 5K walks/runs, Marathons, Concerts, Parades, Fairs, Festivals, Blood Drives, Job & Education Fairs, etc... and provide veterans with on the spot support, referrals and information.
