Westminster teen takes creative approach to helps restart veterans’ lives

Westminster High School student Madeline White, 16, was fairly far from home Nov. 11, attending an event in Baltimore on Veterans Day.
But she was there, among some 300 attendees, sharing a view of “home” that could help homeless veterans across the state.
The event was “re-StART with Art,” an art auction and gala at Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore to benefit Baltimore Station — a residential recovery program treats men, mostly war veterans, who battle homelessness, substance abuse and lack of job skills.
White was among many students throughout the region — most members of their schools’ National Art Honor Society chapters — who contributed paintings and photos, as well as specially painted doors that symbolized doors to recovery for the homeless and addicted men.
