An elderly man approached the Veterans Services area at a recent Convoy of Hope Community Event. As he spoke with one of our volunteers, he shared that he had been a part of the Army National Guard for 34 years, but had never been enrolled in VA care.
The volunteer sat with him, assisted with filling out the necessary paperwork, and helped him turn it in for processing. He now receives the assistance he needs for his heath, vision, and hearing.
Convoy of Hope believes the sacrifice of veterans should be honored. That’s why we dedicate an area for veterans and their families at most every Community Event we hold. We pair every veteran or veteran family member with a guide who provides one-on-one assistance and makes sure Guests of Honor connect with the services they need.
Below is list of organizations that make our Veterans Services area a success.
