Business owner-Iman Aubrey and President of the Armed Forces Chamber of Commerce Foundation-Andre’ Haynes, visited Veterans Village Las Vegas. Together the they donated food and snack items valued at nearly $1,000. They were joined by model-Mayani Gray, who helped load food and snacks onto dollies and pushed them into the main lobby. For several years Aubrey has donated food and beverage items to homeless throughout Southern Nevada.
“Armed Forces members who are without homes deserve a hand up when they are down and that is exactly what Veterans Village Las Vegas provides,” remarked Andre’ Haynes, President of Armed Forces Chamber of Commerce Foundation. “The Armed Forces Chamber is glad to also give a hand up alongside Dr. Arnold Stalk and Iman Aubrey. If the community helps Dr. Stalk, than together, we can reduce homelessness of Armed Forces members.”
