Homes for Our Troops

Brandi's Kitchen in Cottonwood hosted a spaghetti dinner fund-raiser for the Homes for Our Troops non-profit organization on Thursday evening, August 1. Volunteers from VFW7400 Ladies Auxiliary, Verde Valley Moose Lodge 1449, American Legion Post 135 as well help from Food City and Larry Wascek helped to make the event a success - indeed, the dinner was estimated to have raised between $4,5000 and $5,000 dollars. Brandi Fuller donated the use of her restaurant, staff and much of the food and supplies for the dinner. Guests of honor included U.S. Marine Sgt. Jordan Maynard, his wife, Jennifer and their son, Jay, who recently saw the groundbreaking on their new Homes for Our Troops residence in Cottonwood. Donations collected at fundraisers nationwide provide the resources to build specially adapted, no-cost homes for severely injured veterans. VVN/Jon Pelletier
