Attorney James R. Cook II

We, as Americans, owe a great deal of debt to the men and women who have served our country. This drive is the least we can do.

In honor of Memorial Day on May 29, James R. Cook II, an associate at the Law Offices of Stephen L. Gilly & Associates, is hosting a donation drive to help local veterans in need. Items needed include hygiene products, clothing items (i.e. underwear, T-shirts, socks), stationary, coffee and cookies, new or gently used clothing and telephone cards, which can be dropped off at the Law Offices of Stephen L. Gilly & Associates, 531 East Market Street, Kingsport, TN.

“We, as Americans, owe a great deal of debt to the men and women who have served our country. This drive is the least we can do,” said Cook, who was recently named to the Top 40 Under 40 Family Lawyers in the State of Tennessee by the American Society of Legal Advocates. “On Memorial Day especially, my thoughts and prayers will be with those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.”

According to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, an estimated 39,471 veterans are homeless on any given night. Furthermore, two-thirds served our country for at least three years, one-third were stationed in a war zone, and approximately 1.4 million other veterans, meanwhile, are considered at risk of homelessness due to poverty, lack of support networks and dismal living conditions in overcrowded or substandard housing.
