Can you help a veteran?

The folks at Buncombe County Veterans Treatment Court are builders: They are essentially bringing the VTC program into existence from a void. Like most start- ups, they need resources, and are asking community members to contribute funds.

If you would like to donate money to VTC, you can send a check to ABCCM or stop by its offices at 30 Cumberland Ave., Asheville, NC 28801. When donating, be sure to specify in the memo line that the contribution is for Veterans Treatment Court.

If you operate a business and would consider hiring veterans participating in the program, or if you are a veteran and would like to become a mentor for par- ticipants, contact Eric Howard, VTC coordinator, at (828) 259-6601.
