The Lakeview Veterans' Day Parade is proud to be a subsidiary of Joey's Hope for Hungry Kids, a 501(c)(3) organization that feeds 350 children every week. These are children who would otherwise be alone until their caregiver comes home from work. Working in partnership with the Fuel The Future, a 501 (c)(3) Charity, Joey's Hope for Hungry Children is a charitable organization developed to honor and commemorate the life of USMC Sgt. Joseph Anthony Bovia who was killed in Afghanistan while fighting for our right to be free. 100% of proceeds from fundraising events are used to provide food, clothing and shelter to needy children in the New Orleans Metropolitan Area.
When you think about supporting our veterans, please do not forget about Joey's Hope and the wonderful work it does for our children.
