Hickory – Veterans Coffee Connection, a new coffee group for veterans of all ages and branches of military service, will enjoy their first cup of coffee together at 8:30am on August 30 at Outback Steakhouse in Hickory. Thereafter, the group will gather on the last Thursday of every month at 8:30am.

The coffee group, sponsored by Catawba Regional Hospice and hosted by Outback Steakhouse, is designed to be a welcoming place for veterans to meet other veterans in the area. This free gathering is a great place to share a cup of Joe, some tasty Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and swap stories.

In addition, veterans may also learn more about government resources, veteran’s benefits and non-profit organizations who provide veteran’s support in our community.

Catawba Regional Hospice is proud to be a Level IV partner of the We Honor Veterans program, an awareness program spearheaded by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

For more information, please contact Rev. Sandi Hood, Director of Community Relations, Catawba Regional Hospice, 828.466.0466, ext. 3212 or shood@pchcv.org.
