THE BRONX - Dozens of volunteers and first responders are coming together to give back to homeless veterans in the Bronx.

Together with the nonprofit group 'Tuesday's Children,' volunteers packed hundreds of lunches and made blankets and holiday cards to give to veterans.

Organizers say it is their way of saying thanks to those who helped them in their time of need.

Everything will be donated to the Sam Young American Legion Post on Hutchinson River Parkway, and then distributed to veterans in need.
