"Help A Veteran" Phone Bank at WXXI a Huge Success

WXXI partnered with the Veterans Administration and 13WHAM-TV to set a one day record for the number of veterans registering for benefits materials.

More than 850 veterans registered with the VA thanks to the phone bank. The event ran from 6:00am to 6:30pm Tuesday at WXXI's studios in Rochester. Veterans can still register for benefits by calling 1-888-823-9656.
