SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

"We need to start supporting our veterans more and more."

That's why Gary Davis organized a food drive on the 14th anniversary of 9/11.

"A lot of the vets we help, the real vets, were wounded in the wars after 9/11, and we want to celebrate their courage, their answer to the call of their country and we want to make sure that they are not forgotten," said Mary Moylan, pantry organizer.

Organizers of the one percent veteran food pantry set up the food pantry this past spring. These provisions will go to the pantry, located at the Harry Browne airport in Saginaw County. 

"We have war injuries, PTSD, homelessness, unemployment, underemployment, and this shouldn't happen to anybody who has served their country should not go hungry," Moylan said.

And it's not just military vets who could use some assistance.  The same goes for reservists and National Guard members.

Anyone who wants to donate but couldn’t make it to Friday’s food drive can always donate non-perishable food items.

Sam Massman didn't hesitate to drop off some food donations for the pantry. 

"Everybody needs to support our vets. They give us freedom, they gave us their time," Massman said. "We need to carry on and give them everything, give them everything."
