Kanawha County woman gets help with mission to help veterans

Posted: Updated:

A woman is on a mission to help veterans across the country and she's getting some support from the community.

Pizza Hut in Cross Lanes contributed 20 percent of its proceeds on Thursday to help Lisa Groves with her mission. Groves is planning a trip to each of the lower 48 states to raise awareness about veterans issues. This isn't the first time she has made the trip. Groves first trekked across American about ten years ago.

Groves said throughout her travels, she has come across veterans who need everything from friendship to help accessing government resources. "Because so many veterans out here don't know what they qualify for. They have given up hope and they need somewhere to turn. I mean I don't want no veteran to fall behind. It breaks my heart," said Groves.

The fundraiser was scheduled to continue through midnight at the Cross Lanes Pizza Hut.
