Please come out and support the 2nd Annual "Duel In The Desert" competition on Saturday, April 11th at Crossfit Infinite Strength location in Scottsdale, Arizona. Watch teams represent Crossfit Gyms across the Phoenix/Tempe area do battle in various fitness challenges all in support of the VFC. We had a ball last year and we expect it to be twice as good the second time around. If you would like to attend or participate, please see attached flyer here:
The VFC would like to recognize and thank The Arizona Department Of Veteran Services for awarding us a Veterans Donation Fund grant. This substantial size grant will help us serve 100 of the 300 veterans in 2020. One hundred percent of this grant will go towards the purchase of furniture and household goods to help Arizona vets start a new life.
The Arizona Veterans’ Donation Fund has helped fund programs that benefit veterans and their families throughout Arizona since 1999. Arizona State law specifies that tax-deductible donations to, and monies held in, this account can never revert to the State General Fund.
More information on this fund may be found at https://dvs.az.gov/donation-fund
A heartfelt thank you goes out to our friends at Willowbrook UMC. On January 11th and 12th, they kicked off their first ever "Pillow Project". It was a major success. The donation drive collected 137 new pillows and enough funding to purchase an additional 150 pillows and pillow cases.
We sometimes take for granted things we have in everyday life, but this act of kindness will have a huge impact on 287 veterans who may have recently used a box, newspaper or a park bench to rest their head. None of this is possible without support and we are grateful to have a community partner like Willowbrook.
