An elderly man approached the Veterans Services area at a recent Convoy of Hope Community Event. As he spoke with one of our volunteers, he shared that he had been a part of the Army National Guard for 34 years but had never been enrolled in VA care. The volunteer sat him down, assisted him with filling out the necessary paperwork, and helped him turn it in for processing. This veteran will now receive the assistance he needs for his heath, vision, and hearing.
Convoy of Hope believes the sacrifice of veterans should be honored. That’s why we dedicate an area for veterans and their families at most every Community Event we hold. We pair every veteran or veteran family member with a guide who provides one-on-one assistance and makes sure the guest connects with the services they need. Below is list of organizations that help make our Veterans Services area a success:
|American Legion||Red Cross Veterans|
|Community College Training Programs (Grant Recipients)||Regional Veterans Service Officers|
|College VA Services||Supportive Services for Veterans’ Families|
|Elks||V.A. Homeless Housing|
|Existing Stand Downs||V.A. Medical Services (including mobile units)|
|Goodwill Veterans Job & Career Assistance||V.A. Re-Invigoration Programs|
|Hiring Our Heroes||Vet Center|
|Local Career Centers – V.A. Rep||Warriors Journey|
|Local Veterans Organizations & Charities Best Serving Veterans|
We are thankful for the role veterans play in communities all over the United States, and we recognize their service and sacrifice this Veterans Day.
