The Vets Freedom Fest, hosted by Hillcrest Baptist Church was able to donate $5000 to the American Legion Bert Hodge Post 45. The donation will be used by Post 45 for their veterans’ relief programs. The money was raised from donations by individuals, businesses and organizations that support the Vets Freedom Fest held every year to thank and honor our veterans for their sacrifice and service. This year’s event will be held Saturday, April 30, at the Putnam County Fairgrounds. Come out and support our veterans. Anyone wishing to donate to the Vets Freedom Fest may send contributions to Hillcrest Baptist Church, 2009 President Street, Palatka, FL 32177. Donations may also be made to American Legion Bert Hodge Post 45, 316 Osceola Street, Palatka, FL 32177 or our event website at Donate to Vets Freedom Fest. The need is great during this difficult time for our veterans.
