Burgos to host Veterans & Family Members Outreach event

PHILADELPHIA, April 4 – State Rep. Danilo Burgos, D-Phila., announced today he will be hosting a Veterans and Family Members Outreach event on April 11. 

Burgos said the event focused on veterans will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, April 11 at The Lenfest Center, 3890 N. 10th St., Philadelphia.

There are a wide range of federal, state and county benefits available to qualified veterans and their families. Burgos’ staff will be informing veterans on benefits and services available to them, including assistance with applying for VA benefits and healthcare. Referrals to community resources and employment, as well as information on housing, public benefits and counseling also will be discussed.

“When our veterans return home, they should not have to fight any longer just to be taken care of,” Burgos said. “We owe them so much for their sacrifices. I look forward to working with them and their families to make sure their needs are met and they can easily access the services they need for a happier and healthier life.”

Interested residents may contact Burgos’ office at (215) 223-1890 with any questions or for more information.
