Lunch and Learn Workshop to present resources for veterans

 

EDWARDSVILLE – Edwardsville Township and the Glen/Ed Ministerial Alliance invite local agencies to attend a Lunch and Learn Workshop on Wednesday, Jan. 18, from 12 to 1:30 p.m.

The event, which will be held at Bella Milano at 1063 Illinois 157 in Edwardsville, is a follow up from the Second Social Services Safety Net Fall Forum held in November 2016 and will focus on providing information on area resources for veterans.

Speakers will include representatives from the Veterans Assistance Commission of Madison County, Supportive Services for Veteran Families with Chestnut Health Systems, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and the Vet Center.
