- Comfort Kits – From DVNF’s Health & Comfort program, to provide immediate relief to veterans facing financial and housing insecurity. Still seeking donated items
- Gift Cards
- Raffle Items
- And more!!
In November of 2017, we held our first annual veteran resource fair in Silver Spring, MD. We partnered with over 18 local and national organizations with a goal to provide the largest variety of resources to our nation’s heroes in one place.
We serviced over 50 veterans, 33 of whom received suits and other professional attire. We hosted a free raffle and one lucky veteran went home with a flat screen TV, thanks to Walmart.
The DVNF Veteran Resource Fair was born out of our desire to volunteer as a team in our community in honor of Veterans Day. We see no greater way to thank Veterans for their service than to serve and celebrate them with dignity. We are excited to announce that we will be holding this successful event again on Nov, 8th 2018!
Join us in November to say ‘Thank You’ to those that have given the most!
