Join us in honoring our veterans this week by taking part in the many engaging programs offered by our grantees and community partners (some of whom are part of our War Comes Home initiative!):
Santa Ana Public Library – Several Orange County residents and groups partner to create a temporary exhibit in Santa Ana dedicated to Veterans. The exhibit, Our Veterans, Our Communities will be open November 10, 12, and 13 and will feature a collection of posters and personal histories of Santa Ana and Orange County veterans.
