Schedule a Donation Pickup in Pittsburgh

The Vietnam Veterans of America is continuing to make a positive impact on the community of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.

The VVA of Pittsburgh is dedicated to finding new ways to draw support for our nation’s veterans. Chapter members do their part to support fellow veterans in need. They often visit veterans living in the Friendship Ridge, a rehabilitation and therapy home in Beaver County. Members show their love and respect for these vets by bringing small gifts and keeping them company. By talking with them and sharing war stories, VVA members are able to show these veterans that they are cared about and that their service for this country will never be forgotten. The VVA Chapters of the greater Pittsburg metropolitan area also participates in highway clean ups, sponsorship of the Veterans Day Parade, and other community events. In addition, they are dedicated to their Annual Ride to The Wall. This program takes veterans and community members to The Wall and other memorials in Washington, DC to honor those who lost their lives fighting for this country. The VVA also focuses on bringing awareness to important veteran issues. They have held the Veterans Day Balloon Release to recognize, remember, and honor all vets affected by Agent Orange.

Other community events such as blood drives and fundraisers put on by VVA Chapters in the Pittsburg area help drive the support, assistance and respect that our veterans deserve. Continue the service to our veterans by scheduling a Pittsburg area donation pick up today.
