Local organizations use CARES Act funding to help veterans



FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.– A pair of local organizations partner to provide state-of-the-art technology to veterans in Arkansas.

Camp Alliance and the Northwest Arkansas Veterans Coalition applied for and received CARES Act funds to create a new technology kiosk system to help distribute information among Arkansas veterans.

“We’re resource-rich and communication poor. So these connect kiosks are just that – it’s connect. It’s connecting to all existing resources that we have out there for our military veterans. So if you’re an employer and have an awesome initiative to hire our vets. This is a great place for them to find it,” Camp Alliance CEO Jody Bergstrom said
