GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Fidelity Mortgage, Enzo’s Ristorante Italiano, and VFW post 3981 have partnered to feed The VA Medical Center staff and veterans.

One medical worker commented on the gracious donation, saying, “the way the community has come together, I think it has brought everyone closer… not just the hospital staff — but people.. they really know what we do now.”
