Illinois launches “Serving Those Who Served” initiative

Springfield, IL (KWQC) – Officials in Springfield Tuesday kicked-off a new program all about volunteering to help veterans in the state.

Governor Bruce Rauner joined officials from the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs at the Illinois State Military Museum in Springfield, to encourage people to participate in the “Serving Those Who Served” initiative.

It is set to run through the month of November, and creates a state-wide database where veterans groups can list projects that require help, and volunteers can find opportunities to lend a hand.
