(VIERA, FL) May 14, 2018 – The bonds forged by brothers and sisters in arms remain strong long after discharge from military service. So it should come as no surprise that the debt of service is uppermost in the minds of the retired residents of Indian River Colony Club in Viera. On May 1, the charitable foundation for the patriotic neighborhood of military veterans presented a check for $2,000 to Down the Road Thrift, to assist the store with its signature mission: supporting veterans in need. Down the Road Thrift is a 501c3 organization, benefiting veterans in need and their families by providing clothing and basic necessities at no charge. The monies donated by the IRCC Foundation will aid in the purchase of household items needed by down and out veterans, as well as for assisting homeless vets with the transition to housing.
