Veterans in Devils Lake got a big gift this Veteran's Day to help their brethren who are less fortunate.

The UND law school dropped off an entire SUV full of supplies Monday at the Devils Lake Disabled American Veterans office to go to homeless veterans. THere are more than 40 homeless veterans in the state. DAV commander Pete Padilla says the group started collecting clothing and personal items last month hoping to bring in a few boxes, but donations have continued to pour in from across the state, and they're still coming in strong.

"Last week we had just as much here if not more that had been donated also by UND and the people here in town," said Padilla.

Some of the donations from the drive have already gone out to homeless vets. Any extra clothes will go to the Hope Center in Devils Lake to be donated to anyone in need. Padilla says the DAV is focusing now on collecting non-perishable food items for veterans.
