Francis Fund donations and COVID-19

Uplifting news from the Francis Fund and Melissa at the Kansas City VA Voluntary Services Unit:

"As part of the Kansas City VA’s response to COVID-19, we are utilizing Francis’s memorial fund to purchase Walmart gift cards to help out our neediest veterans with food supplies. Our VA Supportive Housing social workers have been using the cards to shop for groceries and other essentials and are delivering to the doors of our neediest veterans — those who were formerly homeless and are newly housed."

We can't imagine a better use for these funds right now. Thank you, Melissa and colleagues!
