C.O.V.E.R. teams from SCI Albion, SCI Cambridge Springs and SCI Mercer came together to participate in the EUMA Liberty House 10K Ruck March/Walk to honor local fallen heroes and end veteran homelessness.
More than a dozen members marched rucks full of donations provided by the generous staff at each institution. The team consisted of correction officers, lieutenants, captains, treatment specialists, activity specialists, psychology staff, social workers, clerk typists, electrical trade instructors, licensed practical nurses, prior/current veteran service members from many branches and family members.
Some donation items included boots, hats, bags, backpacks, personal hygiene items, books, towels, sheets, pillows, socks and much more. All items will be donated to the Erie United Methodist Alliance's Liberty House, the only transitional housing program in Erie County for homeless veterans.
Thanks to everyone for all your support!
