Veterans Day 2021 – Cards for Vets Community Service Project (2nd Annual)
This is a family friendly, virtual event! You, your family and colleagues can get involved. Our 2020 event was an awesome success! We had a sufficient supply of cards for not only patients at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center, but also cards for distribution at the Wilmington VA Center. We hope to repeat the success for Veterans Day 2021. We want to give a shout out to several families and colleague groups who made 2020 a success; we welcome your support again. And, welcome new groups for 2021.
Our primary VA Medical Center recipients for 2021 are the Wilmington DE Center and the Coatesville, PA (suburban Philadelphia) Center. Each Center will need about 200 cards for distribution to their patients (total: 400). Guidelines for preparing cards will be the same as last year. We will post them shortly. In addition to the mail-in collection of cards, we hope to have several collection sites throughout the tri-state membership area. Our tentative final collection date for cards is November 1st.
In addition to cards for our veterans, we will distribute Thank You notes to all staff units (patent care and support) at each Center. Last year we distributed printed cards and intend to do so in 2021. While our focus is on having sufficient cards for patients; if any group would like to prepare hand written Thank You cards for staff, please contact the subcommittee.
Questions / anticipated participation can be forwarded to the Chair – HLNDV Community Service Subcommittee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
