BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — They risk their lives as they commit to serve our country. One local group is waiting to serve them, when they arrive back home. Three Hots and a Cot received a big check for $10,000 Tuesday. The group helps provides housing and other opportunities for homeless veterans in the Birmingham area. The money comes from a Corvette ride fundraiser over the Memorial Day weekend.
Organization founder JD Simpson says, donations of all kinds are welcome, because they all go toward improving the lives of veterans.
“These men, at one time raised their right hands and they die for us. We can’t leave them behind. These men and women have done a lot for our country and we need to continue to serve them today,” says Simpson.
Three Hots and a Cot is always looking for volunteers to help renovate more houses. Click here for more information.
