Veterans Coffee Roasters was the home of the Warriors 1st Thanksgiving dinner on Friday.
Warriors 1st is an organization created to help veterans who are suffering from PTSD or a traumatic brain injury or just need that sense of camaraderie. They also help veterans who ended up in jail get back on the right path.
On Black Friday, they were offering up the chance for anyone to come and sit around a table and have a nice warm meal, potluck style.
“The holidays are a real stressful time,” founder Kevin Ogo said. “I think now is the best time for people to be more open about the things they are going through, so we can get through this season and really enjoy it.”
Warriors 1st recently got their 501(c)(3) recognition to be an official nonprofit.
