Fargo Veterans Affairs Office holds 12th annual VA2K
The 2K walk and wheel collected more than 13,000 food items for homeless veterans in need in 2021.
FARGO — People were moving in any way they could, whether it was by walking or rolling, to help out homeless veterans Wednesday, May 18.
Fargo's Veterans Affairs hosted their 12th annual VA2K Walk & Roll from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Veterans, employees and community members all got in on the walk and roll as the VA asked for donations of shelf-stable items.
Last year, they collected over 13,000 grocery items, and this year they hope to beat that.
"We just want to support our homeless veterans any way we can, and by giving them the food and nutrition they need, that is one way we can help them," said Dawn Latunski, an occupational health nurse coordinator at the Fargo VA.
On Wednesday, they wanted to combine trying to feed homeless veterans with an opportunity to get moving outside.
If you're a veteran that is looking for food assistance, call 701-239-3700, and dial extension 2206.
