There are many inspiring programs and causes happening through out Philadelphia’s Vietnam Veterans of America Chapters. Just as other chapters in the state, the VVA of Philadelphia continues to grow support for all of our nation’s veterans.

The VVA in Philadelphia recently held a “Call to Action” to promote the need for improved veteran health care in Lehigh Valley. Each VVA Chapter shares the goal of bringing veterans together to gain support. Chapter 415 of Lehigh Valley also holds the Northeast Vietnam Veteran Reunion where veterans come from surrounding states to share their stories and camaraderie. This chapter is committed to spreading awareness and education by speaking at local Philadelphia schools as well as by holding essay contests. The Liberty Bell Chapter 266 holds candlelight ceremonies to honor veterans who have lost their lives fighting for this country. In addition, they provide veterans and their families with the opportunity to join the annual Bus Trip to Washington, DC on Veterans Day weekend. Veterans are able to pay their respects to lost brothers and sisters at “The Wall” and other national monuments. The VVA in Philadelphia is dedicated to participating in numerous events that benefit veterans such as the 5k Run/ Walk fundraiser that donates its proceeds to the Philadelphia Veterans Comfort House.

Each program, fundraiser, community event, and cause that the VVA of Philadelphia participates in brings support for each and every well deserving veteran. You can support the VVA of Philadelphia by donating your unwanted items through Pick Up Please.
