Waco, Texas — The Waco VFW Post 8564 Chapter is hosting a free barbecue next week for veterans and the community, despite having financial troubles of their own.
In March of this year, the chapter had to stop hosting bingo nights due to dwindling funds. However, the VFW says they're still committed to serving veterans.
The barbecue takes place Wednesday, July 23 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Veterans One Stop, located at 2220 Austin Avenue. The Salvation Army and others will be helping to donate food. The lunch is free and open to anyone in the community.
