Dan Gallagher, DeKalb American Legion Post 66 commander, donates to the NIU Veterans Association for the second annual fundraiser and camp-out for homeless veterans Thursday in the Martin Luther King Jr. Commons. All proceeds will go to the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans. Gallagher said students hosting events like this is important to the veteran community and can make a big impact on NIU and DeKalb.
