Veterans Court Participants Volunteer at MUST Ministries
Marietta, GA | On Saturday, Aug. 31, participants from Cobb County Veterans Court volunteered at MUST Ministries serving breakfast to more than 40 shelter residents. MUST cares for those in need in the Marietta, Smyrna and Canton/Cherokee county communities.
The community service project included participants, staff, mentors and graduates of the program, whose mission is to successfully rehabilitate veterans by diverting them from the traditional criminal justice system, and providing them with the tools they need to lead a productive and law-abiding lifestyle.
Twenty-two volunteers served breakfast items like biscuits, grits, sausage and eggs, and provided juice and coffee to the residents.
“The community provides us with such great resources for our program and this was just a small way of giving back to the community that so generously gives to us,” said program coordinator Mike Boyd. “Today I saw these guys live up to one of the military values carried by most all veterans of selfless service”
Feeding neighbors in need has always been a core component of MUST Ministries. The Atlanta-metro area has one of the fastest growing poverty rates in the United States, leaving children and families in our communities going hungry. Because of private donations of food and money, 30 MUST and MUST Save It Forward food pantries give away an astounding ton of food a day to those in need.
