Officials in Cape May County say they will be holding a drive-thru resource event for veterans next week.

The event will take place in the front parking lot of the Cape May County Department of Human Services at 4005 Route 9 South in Rio Grande on Thursday, September 17th, from 10AM to 2PM.

According to a press release from the county,

Representatives from the Wilmington VA Medical Center’s Southern New Jersey Veteran Community Outreach Team, the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office HopeOne resource van, and the Cape May County Division of Aging and Disabilities Services will be present. Additionally, Veteran Service Officers from the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and Cape May County will be in attendance.

Information and resources regarding Veterans healthcare, disability claims, VA pensions, and many other subjects will be readily available. For the safety of all, appropriate social distancing and mask-wearing will be required. Veterans and their families may stay in their vehicles and a representative will come to them.

Freeholder Jeffrey L. Pierson says, "With COVID-19 eliminating in-person events, we have been forced to change our annual Veterans' Day Memorial Ceremony at Naval Air Station Wildwood. Instead, we will mark the occasion with a virtual video honoring our Veterans that will be available on the county website www.capemaycountynj.gov. The Resource Drive-thru event will give our Veterans and their families the opportunity to talk to representatives and gather important information."
