The holiday season is approaching fast and once again, the Allen County Veterans Service Commission is here to help local veterans.

Allen County Veterans or their dependents, in need of assistance, can apply for a holiday voucher. The voucher gets you a turkey or ham from any Chief Markets up to $30. Applicants need to have a DD 214, proof of residency and will be asked income and asset questions. Executive Director Tamara Curtis says these vouchers can benefit veterans in more than one way.

"What it's done is it's gotten them to come in and veterans that don't normally come in for help, because they may not need assistance, they come in and find out they may be eligible for other things," Curtis said. "More long term benefits.  They find out they are eligible for even temporary financial assistance."

Veterans can stop by the Veterans Service Commission from November 13th to the 22nd between 8 AM to noon and 1 to 3 PM.
