HARTFORD – On Tuesday, April 19, State Representative and ranking member of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee Dave Yaccarino attended the Help-A-Hero event at the state capitol in Hartford.

Yaccarino donated to support homeless veterans at the South Park Inn Veteran Drop-In Center in Hartford.

“I was honored to be able to help our veterans in need today, even though my contribution is small compared to all that they have sacrificed with their honorable service to this country. Now that we have abolished chronic homelessness amongst veterans in Connecticut, it is only befitting that we also ensure that their basic needs are met. Our veterans served us and it’s time we serve them and their families.”

South Park Inn is a not-for-profit [501 (c) (3)], providing shelter and care since 1984. For more information click here.
