Local vendors host Veterans for Veterans Benefit Fair

Local veteran assistance providers gathered at the Amarillo Senior Center to help introduce services to veterans in the area.

Nearly 25 local vendors participated from healthcare providers to representatives from America Supports You Texas. A representative from Congressman Mac Thornberry's office also attended the event to help answer questions from veterans themselves.

"This is the very first of its kind so I know if it will help the 30 or so veterans that came out today, and it will also help the different providers that came out today because now they know who these veterans are and it kind of creates better trust," LaViza Matthews with Impact Futures said.
