Veterans Village San Diego
For the FedEx Cares United Way Campaign, our team, SANA, went to the Veterans Village of San Diego and served the Veterans in transitional housing. Veterans Village offers a range of services to all vets from rehabilitation, On-site pharmacy, interventions, education, counseling, Job placement, and houses over 150 homeless Vets. They have an on-site Mess Hall where they provide meals three times a day to their residents and anyone else who would like to stop by for a donation.
Our station gathered together a group of volunteers to work in the Mess Hall and serve the veterans on two different days. We had also been collecting Non-perishable food items in 40 Purple Tote Bags that we delivered the week prior to Thanksgiving. These two days of service have really motivated the employees to more events like this one and they all had great interactions with the Vets.
