In celebration of the 2019 Pretrial, Probation and Parole Supervision Week, the Monroe Circuit Court probation department staff completed a service project for veterans.
The department collected donations to provide gift bags to local veterans in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs Bloomington Community-Based Outpatient Clinic and the VA’s Bloomington Mental Health Clinic.
The gift bags contained numerous hygiene products, household items, reading materials, military souvenirs and gift cards for food.
Personalized notes and letters were included to let the veterans know they are valued.
The department donated a total of 74 gift bags to veterans.
A majority of the donations were provided to veterans visiting the VA’s Bloomington Community-Based Outpatient Clinic.
The remaining donations were provided to the VA’s Bloomington Mental Health Clinic to assist low-income and homeless veterans utilizing the Department of Housing and Urban Development and Housing Choice Voucher assistance program services.
