The Vietnam Veterans of America is fighting for amazing causes all over Michigan. The VVA of Michigan undertakes many different programs and movements to drive support for all of our nation’s veterans. The VVA Sate of Michigan Council is committed to holding meetings to raise awareness for important issues such as Agent Orange victims, homeless and incarcerated vets, POW/MIA, women veterans, veteran benefits, service programs and much more. VVA chapters all over Michigan are also doing their part to raise awareness and support for veterans. Chapter 1047 of Harrison holds annual Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day events. Chapter 310 of Washtenaw works with their members and the community to continue their Packages for Troops program. Every other month Chapter 310 holds packing parties and assembles over 3,000 care packages that are sent to our troops. They also hold the annual Kokomo reunion that brings Vietnam Veterans together from all over the United States. Each year Chapter 310 brings the community and its veterans together to join in music, games, food and fun at their Pig Roast event. Members as well as the community are very involved in the efforts of the VVA in Michigan. One long time VVA of Michigan member organized a fundraiser at a local restaurant where the money raised went to Operation Never Forgotten. This program sends fifty recovering injured warriors from all over America to a week long event in their honor.
Any time you donate your unwanted household items, you are helping the VVA of Michigan carry on their inspiring programs and events that support our well deserving veterans. The VVA is forever committed to bringing support to all veterans and their communities.
