Team members from the Utica Comets, came to the Feed Our Vets Utica pantry on January 7th and volunteered. They sorted food, talked with the veterans that we help, signed autographs, took photos with them and hung out with us.
The Utica Comets are a professional ice hockey team based in Utica, New York. They are members of the North Division, of the Western Conference of the American Hockey League.
Feed Our Vets showed our appreciation by providing them with a 5′ by 9′ American Flag and a Thank You plaque with the American Eagle on it for their support and taking the time to come down and be with us.
