Our featured Round Up For Change organization for September is the Office of Veteran Services, which assists local veterans in the City of North Adams, as well as the towns of Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Dalton, Florida, Lanesborough, Savoy and Williamstown.
Customers shopping with us throughout the month will be offered the option of rounding up the total amount of their purchases to the next whole dollar. All of the funds generated through this program will then be donated to the Office of Veteran Services to support its work in our community.
Led by Director of Veteran Services, Stephen Roy, this office is directly responsible for providing veterans with benefit service under Chapter 115 of the General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as well as assistance with claims and other matters pertaining to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
Local veterans can contact the office for help with issues such as alcohol and drug rehabilitation, archiving documents/records of historical value, completion of benefit forms, employment assistance/referrals, food insecurity, health care, housing assistance and permanent disability.
