Veterans Strong Community Center in Bristol (“VSCC”) was awarded a $6500 grant from the Bristol Brass General Grant Fund and the James R. Parker Trust at Main Street Community Foundation to support ongoing outreach activities in the communities VSCC serves.
While VSCC is open to all Veterans, it does serve primarily the communities of Bristol, Burlington, Harwinton, Plainville, Plymouth, Thomaston and Wolcott.
This grant allows VSCC to continue to conduct monthly /bi-monthly outreach events in each of the towns it services. The outreach events allow Veterans and their families that are unable to travel to the main office in Bristol to speak with the knowledgeable staff and connect with relevant and necessary services.
“We are excited to receive a grant from Main Street Community Foundation again this year. Being able to keep the main office open with staff, while conducting outreach in the other communities, has helped us maintain continuity and provide better services to Veterans”, said Donna Dognin, Executive Director.
VSCC is an information and resource center for Veterans, Service Members and their families, based in Bristol. It serves the surrounding communities of Burlington, Harwinton, Plainville, Plymouth, Thomaston and Wolcott.
