Co-Lin welcomes veterans with outreach

On behalf of Copiah-Lincoln Community College, it is our privilege to invite all military veterans, both active and retired, and their dependents to our “Veteran Services Outreach Event” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday in the Nelson Multipurpose Room of the Career-Technical Education Building.

The various agencies present Wednesday will provide hands on services such as eligibility determination, VA registration, MyHealth E Vet enrollment, physical exams, patient education and benefit information. Veterans and their dependents should bring some form of proof of service, such as DD Form 214, ID card, VA Card or related documents.

We are delighted to have military-related representatives from a host of organizations ranging from the VA Medical Center, the Vet Center, Adams County Veterans Service Office, Miss-Lou Veterans Villages, GV Sonny Montgomery Medical Center, WIN Job Center  and VA Medical Center — Natchez CBOC, just to name a few.

We are especially pleased representatives from the new Veterans’ Women’s Clinic will be on hand as well.

We would also like to remind the community about the upcoming Point-in-Time homeless count.

The count will take place Jan. 27. As part of the count we are collecting items to create care packages. Items needed for the count include: clothes, underwear (both men’s and women’s), blankets, thermoses, small hygiene products, razors, dental care items, hand sanitizer, fast-food vouchers, pop top canned foods and non-perishable snack foods.

We will have donation boxes available for anyone who would like to contribute.

The Adams County count team is also looking for volunteers to assist with the count.

If you would be interested in volunteering, please contact Mr. Kenny Rushing at 601- 431-2223.

The Veteran Services Outreach event is a way to bring services to the military community in Natchez and the surrounding area. We are honored to host this event for veterans and their families who have given so much to our country.

Thank you for your service. We look forward to seeing you all Wednesday. For more information, contact Co-Lin at 601-446-1207 or Kenny Rushing at 601-431-2223.

Teresa Busby is vice president of Co-Lin’s Natchez campus.
