WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — A local store will hold a special event to honor local Veterans this Weekend. “Operation Made” is celebrating its fifth year in business while honoring our local military.

On Saturday, November 11th they are inviting the public to check out their store, and support local Veterans.

There will be special exhibits, raffles, giveaway and vendors, as well as free lunch for Veterans. “Operation Made” aims to encourage entrepreneurship in the military community by helping Veteran-owned companies grow their businesses. The store features all products made or owned by Veterans.
