Ivy Tech to hold free breakfast honoring veterans

KOKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College Kokomo Region will hold a free breakfast on Friday, Nov. 11 as part of Military Appreciation Days in Kokomo, a week-long event that runs Nov. 7-14.

The “thank you” breakfast will take place from 8 to 10 a.m. on Veteran’s Day at the Military Resource Center located next to the Admission’s Office in the Student Services Building on E. Morgan St. All veterans eat for free while non-veterans are asked to make a donation. Funds raised will support Ivy Tech Kokomo Region’s Stars and Stripes Patriotic Student Club, an organization that supports Ivy Tech’s large population of nearly 800 student veterans.  All proceeds from the breakfast will go to the Boots-to-Books scholarship fund through the Ivy Tech Foundation. 

“This gives everyone the opportunity to thank veterans for all of their dedication and sacrifices. Please stop by and thank a veteran,” said Stars and Stripes advisor and Director of Alumni Relations Mike Lee.

Ivy Tech is also selling flag cards for $1 at the front desk of the main building. When you purchase a flag card, you will receive a coupon for $1 off at the Golden Corral restaurant in Kokomo.  All proceeds from the sale of these flag cards will go to the Disabled American Veterans organization. DAV supports veterans that have been disabled in the line of duty.
