Mission: The veterans' holiday celebration inc. Creates an environment of caring, nurturing, honoring, and love for all veterans to celebrate their commitment, dedication and service to our country. We are building a future where veterans across the usa will have a place of honor to be embraced, acknowledged, and welcomed by their communities, where food, music, laughter, and fun will be our language from the heart. We envision a country where all veterans are cherished today, regardless of the political climates or public judgements they had to endure during their time of service.
Programs: Once a year, the organization provides a free holiday meal, gift bags and entertainment for approximately 4,500 veterans and active duty personnel at the veterans administration facility in west los angeles, california.
I have volunteered for this cause more than ten years. I was drawn to it because of the unique simple gesture that the organizers wanted to pass along to our military community. I discovered that this event is much more than about thanking Vet's and their families, it is about strengthening the ties of our community, building better personal and working relationships with other men and women, and rebuilding our national pride one community at a time.
