Event Description:

maCares has teamed up with The Fitness Center at Kernersville to honor hospitalized servicemen and women with a Veterans Appreciation event on Wednesday, November 9th from 9 am – 12 pm and 4 pm – 7 pm.

We need the community’s help to create and provide artwork and/or letters expressing their gratitude for a veteran’s service. The collected artwork and letters will be hand delivered by our faith Cares veterans and their service dogs to hospitalized servicemen and women at the four Veterans Affairs Medical Centers in North Carolina. Download pages to color of our faith Cares service dogs at http://www.macares.org/kids-corner.

Community members are encouraged to bring artwork and/or letters for hospitalized veterans to The Fitness Center at Kernersville on Wednesday, November 9th. You’ll also be able to meet local veterans and their service dogs in our faith Cares program, which helps veterans living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and/or Traumatic Brain Injury by covering the costs associated with their service dogs.

Also, while the maCares and faith Cares volunteers are at The Fitness Center at Kernersville, we are collecting retired military uniforms for Operation Uniform which will re-purpose the retired uniforms into items that will help raise awareness and money to support service dogs of faith Cares’ veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and/or Traumatic Brain Injury. 

Those who are unable to attend the event can still participate by sending a drawing and/or a letter of thanks for a veteran. Please email your artwork and/or letter to [email protected]. Artwork and letters can also be mailed to 1302 Pleasant Ridge Rd. Greensboro, NC 27409 Attn: maCares – 2016 Honoring Veterans. The delivery deadline is November 9th.
