Head to the Eastern end of Columbia's Business Loop 70 and you'll find Patriot Place. The Columbia Housing Authority-owned apartments house U.S. veterans who have struggled to maintain their housing. At the back of the property lies a garden.

Today Paul Pepper and KATE HARRY talk about all the services provided by the Assistance League of Mid-Missouri, and how money from the quarterly cookie sale benefits programs like Operation: School Bell, which provides clothing to school-aged children. Get your orders in for the next cookie sale by February 2nd! At [4:35] Columbia Housing Authority CEO PHIL STEINHAUS brings us up to date on the Patriot Place Apartments project, which will provide "permanent housing rent subsidy for homeless veterans." One of the goals is to fully furnish each apartment, and that's where you can help! Watch for details. January 25, 2016
