ROSCOMMON- The VFW Roscommon Riders Group recently traveled to Gaylord to present a check in support of Patriot Place. Members spent the summer hosting monthly dinners to raise funds to support a local nonprofit organization doing great work. They chose Patriot Place as this year’s beneficiary.

Patriot Place is a nonprofit organization with a transitional housing program for homeless veterans. Located in Gaylord, it is the only transitional living program for veterans experiencing homelessness in Northern Michigan. Much of the funding received by the organization is designated for specific purposes, leaving areas of unmet needs. “It is people and organizations such as yours that make this program a success,” said Patriot Place Manager John Zangoulas. “On behalf of the veterans and staff of the Patriot Place, thank you.”

The VFW Roscommon Riders Group is an activity of VFW Post 4159. The group supports the post and its programs through community service and the promotion of responsible motorcycling.
