‘Veterans One-Stop’ Draws in 200 Plus for Lockport Chicken Dinner — All Proceeds to Help Transition from Military to Civilian Life

“It’s the first time we’ve done it here,” said Chuck Marra, President and CEO of ‘Veterans One-Stop Center of WNY’.  “We are looking forward to doing it more.  It has obviously been an interesting year.  We have had several of our fundraisers cancelled.  So, this is our way of testing the waters, and it’s gone very well.”

Each freshly cooked chicken dinner was $11.00 a piece, with all proceeds directed towards helping former military acclimate back into civilian life.

Marra reported these donations will aid veterans in attaining healthcare, general benefits, employment, and housing.

Expanding on operations, Marra said, “The organization started in 2013.  Its main mission is helping veterans’ transition from military to civilian life.  We work with the VA and other non-profits in the area providing special services that are uniquely for veterans.”
