Utica College uses scrap metal to help area veterans

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Utica College made a very "heavy" donation Monday to an area veterans organization.

Cadets from the Utica College ROTC program and members of the school's Veterans Club loaded several tons of scrap metal onto a truck. The metal will be recycled and exchanged for cash. The cash will be donated to the "Feed Our Vets" program in Utica.

The goal of "Feed Our Vets" is to provide regular, free food distribution to veterans and their families.

It is estimated that more than 130,000 veterans are homeless in America.
