Since 1991, volunteers have played a critical role in Veterans Inc.’s success and growth. As a non-profit organization with a small staff, we simply could not provide the level of services that we do without your assistance. The countless hours of time and talent, in addition to monetary and in-kind support, ensure that Veterans Inc. can continue its mission to improve the lives of veterans and their families and, ultimately, save lives.
Among the countless ways to support the Veterans Inc. mission and help veterans reclaim their lives are the following.
Hold an Event at Veterans Inc. – Training/meeting rooms, conference/banquet space, a chapel and 22 acres of landscaped grounds at Independence Hall in Shrewsbury, Mass. are available for rental by businesses and organizations. Click here for more information.
Veterans Inc. Fundraising Events – Assist with our annual Golf Tournament, Pancake Breakfast and Road Races, as well as the biennial Gala Military Ball. Volunteers help with event planning, management and promotion.
Run a Donation Drive – Collect items on our Wish List, which are needed for our residents. Food, clothing and toiletry drives in particular are very helpful. Other ideas are welcomed. PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to run a donation drive, please contact email@example.com
Events & Programs for Residents – Help Veterans Inc. by sponsoring events for the residents of our housing, including but not limited to seasonal/holiday parties, cookouts, monthly birthday parties, as well as the Annual Central Massachusetts Stand Down held in June.
Recreational Activities – Spend a few hours sponsoring a recreational activity for residents. Examples are movie nights, basketball or softball games, tennis, fishing, nature walks, and board game tournaments.
