Informational event for students and public

The Office of Veterans Affairs at South Texas College will host Veterans Expos Nov. 15 at the Mid Valley Campus and Nov. 16 at the Technology Campus. The expo consists of area vendors distributing information on benefits and services available to veterans.

Assistance will be available to veterans in applying for grants that they can use towards rent, utilities and daycare for children, as well as tuition assistance and transportation.

Organizations will also be on hand to provide services including legal aid, mental health care, veterans’ benefit claims assistance, hearing loss, home care, mortgage loans, small business start-up assistance and PTSD therapy assistance.

The hours for both expos is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Mid-Valley Campus is located at 400 North Border Ave., Weslaco, and the Technology Campus at 3700 West Military Hwy., McAllen.
