THE ULTIMATE RESTAURANT ROAD TRIP!

Over the past three months we’ve highlighted restaurants all around the Motor City. Now it’s time for our Ultimate Road Trip to raise money for a local charity feeding veterans. On April 29, Big Jim and Ryan road tripped to Clydes Burgers in St. Ignace for the Ultimate Restaurant Road Trip to raise money for Vets Returning Home!

300 MILES, ONE GOAL.

THE CHARITY
Vets Returning Home is a wonderful local charity that serves 800 meals weekly to vets and their families.
OUR GOAL
Make it from the WCSX studios to Clydes Burgers in St Ignace (just over the Mackinac Bridge…300 miles one way) during the show on Thursday Morning, April 29th.
HOW TO HELP
Make a donation to our Ultimate Restaurant Road Trip – the goal is $10 per mile (300 miles) to benefit Vets Returning Home.

Some Friends of Big Jim’s House have checked in to show their support:

 

 

 

ABOUT VETS RETURNING HOME

Vets Returning Home is a nonprofit and non-government funded organization dedicated to help our veterans transition into stable lives. The goal of Vets Returning Home is simple: to end chronic homelessness among veterans in our communities. Our mission is complex, requiring more than putting a roof over the veterans’ heads. It requires an approach that address the “total veteran” and his needs and making sure they succeed after they are transitioned. We are a volunteer operated 11,000 square foot facility with 43 beds and commercial kitchen. 6 of the 43 beds are dedicated to females only. We provide a stable and sober living environment to veterans in crisis. Onsite services including employment readiness training, aid with job placement, disability benefit connection, legal support and life skills training. Community support both physical and financial has been vital to our ability to continue our mission. Vets Returning home receives NO government funding. We have successfully transitioned on average 250 veterans a year back into society as a fully functioning community member.
