Veterans helping Veterans: Lowcountry nonprofit gifts couple with car, wedding ceremony

A Lowcountry nonprofit gave one couple a wedding ceremony and a car on Saturday after noticing they really needed it.

Saturday is the third anniversary of the Combat Veterans Association’s Lowcountry Chapter’s “Breaking Bread.”

On the first Saturday of every month at the Patriot Villas in North Charleston, the nonprofit gives food and a sense of community to other Veterans in need.

For their anniversary, the nonprofit decided to do even more than giving meals.

When they found out a young Veteran at the Patriot Villas was in desperate need of transportation to work, they gave him a car.

“All the Veterans that come here were homeless, and they all got here for a reason,” CVMA member Brian Higuera said. “So what we want to do is let people know that they’re not forgotten.”

They also held a wedding ceremony for the Veteran and his now-wife. The wedding was officiated by Chapter Commander Eddie Negron….”
