WESTBOROUGH – More than 50 veterans came to the senior center on Sept. 16 to learn more about programs and services offered through the Central Massachusetts Veteran Service District.
Director Jeff Farrell said the two biggest challenges facing veterans are food insecurity and housing. He added that veterans can receive assistance through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Meals on Wheels and other agencies.
Farrell also mentioned the property tax work-off program, where eligible residents may work for the town in exchange for a reduction on their property taxes.
The district serves Westborough, Grafton, Northborough and Shrewsbury.
The event, which included a free catered breakfast, was sponsored by the American Legion Post 0163.
