MWCC to host veterans’ resource fair Tuesday

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

GARDNER — Mount Wachusett Community College will host a free Veterans’ Resource Fair with more than 25 organizations on Tuesday in an effort to connect veterans and their families with services.

“Though it is taking place at Mount Wachusett Community College, it is by no means limited to veteran educational matters,” said MWCC’s Director of Veterans Services Bob Mayer. “There will be many other agencies and opportunities represented.”

The fair is a gathering of companies, organizations and nonprofits that provide services to local veterans and their families. The organizations include Heywood Healthcare, ClearCaptions and Veterans Inc. The fair will be held at the college’s Gardner campus from 5 to 7 p.m.

Veterans of all ages and their families are welcome. Whether someone is looking to change careers, overcome a setback or working just to get by, there will likely be a service that can help. The organizations will cover topics including family retreats, legal services, housing and homeownership, financial education and assistance, educational benefits and disability claims.

Registration is encouraged at: mwcc.edu/vetfair.
