To draw awareness to and address the needs of local veterans, WXXI and the Little Theatre convened a group of Board members and community leaders to form a Veterans Affairs Task Force. The task force identifies the most pressing needs and issues facing veterans and their families and makes recommendations about ways that WXXI/Little programming and outreach can help address those needs.
