About Veterans Connections
To draw awareness to and address the needs of local veterans, WXXI and the Little Theatre convened a group of Board members and community leaders to form a Veterans Affairs Task Force. The mission of the Veterans Affairs Task Force is to identify the most pressing needs and issues facing veterans and their families in Greater Rochester and the surrounding area and to make recommendations about ways that WXXI/Little programming and outreach can help address those needs.
Our Goal: Helping bridge military and veteran needs with community support and awareness.
- Create a community platform for veterans to share their stories.
- Raise awareness of issues and educate the community about what veterans and their families face.
- Use WXXI/Little programming and outreach to connect veterans and their families with area resources.
