We will not stop "Serving our Veterans and local communities in Need" because of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 1036 Non-Profit is located in The Villages, Florida. We are the largest Vietnam Veterans Chapter in the State of Florida and the sixth largest Veterans Chapter in the United States. We are comprised of female and male members, from every branch of the Service from Privates to Generals. We are a NON-PROFIT organization and all donations are 100% tax deductible.
Our two major fundraising events have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Virus Pandemic. Our Annual Golf Outing normally held in May was cancelled causing a severe setback in donations. Our second major fundraiser is our Annual Pancake Breakfast held in October, is still up in the air at this time. We hope and pray that we will go forward with this fundraiser.
Chapter 1036 provides $30K annually to support many programs that benefit both veterans and others in need within our community. We give Educational Scholarships to local worthy students to continue their dreams pursuing secondary education. We assist the local Fruitland Park Food Pantry in preparation for Thanksgiving and Christmas by providing financial support, lending a helping hand in food packaging and delivery to over 300 families. We provide financial assistance to K-9 Partners for Patriots to help veterans who are visually challenged. We support any Veteran who has a hardship and requires financial assistance to get their life back in good order.
"We continue to serve America's Veterans and Communities". We achieve our goal through your 100% tax deductible generous donations from wonderful human beings like yourself. Our many thanks
