PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - An organization is hoping to open transitional barracks for veterans in the Mid-Ohio Valley. On Saturday, the public has the chance to help them make it a reality.
We Have Your Six is having a charity auction at the American Legion Post 15 in Parkersburg Saturday afternoon. The money raised will help the organization purchase a building in south Parkersburg for the barracks.
The organization hopes to create a permanent solution to help end military veteran homelessness in the United States. That mission hits home for Steve Seedorf, the event’s auctioneer and a veteran himself.
“I am a veteran myself and having veterans living out on the street is it’s unacceptable to me this touches my heart and I hate it we need more people involved and this one way I can help,” he said.
The auction starts at 1 p.m.
