Elks, Plumbers Lend a Hand to Vets for Vets

Members of Pottstown Elks Lodge 814 and the Pottstown Area Master Plumbers Association present a $6,000 donation to the Vets for Vets organization in Pennsburg.

Vets for Vets is an organization in Pennsburg run by veterans to help returning veterans re-adjust to civilian life.

VFV's goal is to provide safe and positive transitional housing providing a mixture of camaraderie,
life skills as well as educational and employment opportunities.
Recently, the transitional home at 32 4th St. in Pennsburg was visited by members of the Veterans Committee of Pottstown Elks Lodge 814 and the Pottstown Area Master Plumbers Association.

They brought along a check for $6,000 to donate to the group.

Each July, the Elks Lodge has a golf outing sponsored by Vlahos/Dunn Insurance and donations from that outing, along with $2,100 from the Master Plumbers Association were pooled together to help Vets for Vets.

The group that visited the facility was comprised of: Ron Nace, Gina Custer, Terry Embody, Paul Mizic, Bob Rhoades, Bill Ebinger, Jim Vlahos and Cathy Paretti from the Elks; and Dave Hollenbach, Del Locke, Anthony Piazza, James Loftus from the Master Plumbers Association.

They were greeted by Jonathan Bittner, who welcomed them and gave them a tour of the facility.

More information can be found at or by calling 484-938-vets (Jake Leone, Administrator/ Michael Stephens, Veteran Liaison)
