WE CAN USE YOUR ASSISTANCE AS THE MISSION IS GROWING

SAN DIEGO TEAM HAS MADE DELIVERIES EVERY MONTH IN 2020 - KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK MIKE AND LORRAINE CARO

Thank you VFW 3788 for your support, we were able to consistently deliver food each month to in need veterans in the San Diego area. The 4th year was challenging but we still have a pantry at the generous VFW Post 377 in Kearny Mesa, CA. There were minimal outside cash donations this year a piece of the business we are still mastering. The available funds were as always spent on fresh meat and vegetables to be included in our food packages. Food Drives have been very helpful in augmenting our balanced meal approach.

A HUGE SHOUT-OUT TO EVERYONE’S PAST SUPPORT

CB Harley’s General Manager Chaze Karanick and Media Director Ashley Tridle crushed it at a turkey raffle event that netted a large amount of canned goods to be donated to the pantry as well as a Turkey that went to one of our lucky Veteran Families.

VETERAN WITH FAMILY BELOW FIRST TO DONATE, THANKS!

The other food drive this year was at Santee Lakes. Nancymae Gallagher and her crew were able to amass dry goods and clothing for donation, which makes Christmas a little better this year for our Veterans. Thanks everyone who helped us in our mission! We deliver food assistance once a month to in need veterans. We are proud to part of the solution for some who have food insecurity issues. The next year looks bright as we try to grow to serve more Veterans.

ASSISTANCE FOR VETERANS COULD USE YOUR HELP IN SAN DIEGO

Assistance for Veterans in San Diego had a lot to be thankful for. We have over three years of deliveries under our belt and look forward to another year of the same. We also had success on Veterans Day with 2 food drives held at Santee Lakes as well as National City’s Sweetwater Harley Davidson.

Nancymae Gallagher Santee Lakes park recreation coordinator contacted Assistance For Veterans because the staff “wanted to help veterans needing help locally” after which we provided containers kept on the grounds for staff and visitors to put donations in, we thank all those who gave which added to our November deliveries and to our storage pantry, thanks Santee Lakes!

The Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club San Diego “BSMCSD” had a food drive at Sweetwater Harley Davidson in National City thanks to Alberto Rodriguez the Clubs’ media liaison who I met at another military event he and Sweetwater Harley’s outreach director Desiree Ramirez organized the club to run a food drive which was also successful in allowing for some robust deliveries and adding to our storage for future deliveries thanks BSMCSD!

Assistance For Veterans San Diego wants to thank Food for Less managers Miguel Bonilla and Dino Ocampo for donating to us over the last year, which really helps with getting fresh meat to our Veteran Families.

SALUTE TO THE MILITARY AT SWEETWATER HARLEY-DAVIDSON

Assistance for Veterans s was at National City’s Sweetwater Harley Davidson for a Salute to the Military event, a day of music and community giving. The CPO 365 an active military community service organization was raising money with a BBQ meal and car wash while booths of other venders rounded out the event. Capt. E.  Royce Williams (Ret) was an interesting speaker who described missions he flew that earned him the Distinguished Flying Cross. The Ideas filled the afternoon with several sets of good old time rock n roll making for an excellent family event on a Saturday afternoon. We want to thank Sweetwater Harley Davidson for partnering with Assistance for Veterans to grow our food supplies.
