Thirteen years ago, Naperville Responds for Veterans hosted its first breakfast at the Judd Kendall VFW Post 3873. Spearheaded by Navy Veteran Jack Persin, Pat Bowler, and dozens of folks from the building trades and local real estate industry, the large community group in attendance was introduced to the hopes and dreams of Naperville Responds, a vision that included providing home improvement services to Veterans in need or in crisis. The 2022 Luncheon featured over 550 attendees and Veterans. Most photos by Jim Hoch.
One more thing… Naperville Responds for Veterans also will host the 2nd Annual Naperville Salute July 1-4, at Rotary Hill. The four-day family festival aims to bring the community together for a fun-filled summertime experience and to celebrate Independence Day. Cheers to Salute!
