Waterloo, IA – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) will host the second annual Andrew Connolly Day of Service on Saturday, October 27th. The Andrew Connolly Day of Service will be held in conjunction with Make a Difference Day in Dubuque.

Andrew Connolly was an Iraq Veteran who lost his battle to terminal cancer in August 2011. Because of Andrew’s efforts to pay it forward and Braley’s legislation in Congress, thousands of Veterans will have sufficient funds to pay for adaptive housing.

In honor of his life and service to others, the yearly day of service to pay it forward will take place this Saturday. This year, efforts will go toward helping elderly residents in Dubuque, Andrew’s hometown.

The press is welcome to attend.
