Never again will one generation of Veterans abandon another"

Schedule a Donation Pickup in Connecticut

By donating household items in Connecticut you are joining the Vietnam Veterans of America in their efforts to provide support for all veterans. The VVA is doing so many amazing things in your own Connecticut community as well as all across the United States. When you schedule a free donation pickup, you help VVA at a local level.

The VVA has so many inspiring ways of showing our nation’s veterans the respect and assistance they deserve. Chapter 120 of Greater Connecticut holds their annual Stand Down event in Rocky Hill. This event provides free services, assistance and information from federal and state agencies and businesses for Connecticut veterans. Volunteers join in the event to give veterans free services. Last year, volunteer hair dressers from the Marinello Beauty School gave free haircuts. Volunteers from the Yale School of Nursing also checked veterans for blood pressure and other important medical tests. Many homeless veterans come to get help with getting through the red tape of getting the benefits they deserve. Over seventy different organizations come every year to support those that defend this country. Chapter 120 also works with local food banks to provide supplemental food for low income families. Life member, Bob Burgess collects and donates winter coats to the needy and children of veterans every winter. Chapter 120 continues to advance their mission of promoting public awareness as well as being an active veteran’s watchdog in local, state and governmental affairs.

In addition to VVA Chapter #120, Connecticut also has three additional chapters which include chapter #251 in Milford, chapter #270 in Niantic, and chapter #484 in East Haven. Donating household itemstoolsclothes, and even instruments allows you to do your part in honoring our veterans. Schedule a free donation pick up in Connecticut today to support our veterans.
