Schedule a Donation Pickup in California

When you schedule a donation pickup in California, you are helping to further the inspiring efforts of the Vietnam Veterans of America. The VVA is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of veterans as well as their communities.

Each and every VVA Chapter in California is putting forth many beneficial activities. From community service in Northern California to Town Hall meetings in San Diego the Vietnam Veterans of America is committed to so many wonderful causes. However the VVA cannot do it alone, your donations of household items can assist VVA in their amazing efforts. For instance, your household item donations can help Chapter 391 of Sonora, California have the funds to continue their community service work of distributing baskets that contain fixings for traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners to needy veterans and senior citizens. Our veterans need the support that VVA provides. Such efforts like that of the Central Coast Chapter 982, who holds annual Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans day events, give the community an opportunity to show our Veterans the love and respect they deserve. In all of California, VVA strives to be a dependable source of support for our communities as well as our Veterans. Chapter 53 of Redondo Beach holds scholarship programs for High School Seniors who are children and grandchildren of Veterans. Chapter 223 of Santa Rosa assembles luncheons honoring Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) research, treatment and diagnosis. Chapter 391 of Sonora carries out annual golf tournaments where half the proceeds are donated to Meals on Wheels, a non profit organization that delivers hot meals to the elderly.

VVA of California has contributed much needed support to veterans in our communities and continues to find new ways to help California’s veterans. Your household item donations can help care for our well deserving veterans more attainable.
