The Veterans of the Vietnam War, Inc. & The Veterans Coalition
WHAT IS A WORKING BEE?
A Working Bee is a great way to be part of a “Veterans helping Veterans” program of the Veterans of the Vietnam War, Inc. & The Veterans Coalition.
The idea is for Veterans and volunteers to travel to a leased or purchased building that the Veterans of the Vietnam War, Inc. & The Veterans Coalition has investigated as being a viable United Veterans Beacon House, a transitional homeless Veterans program.
No, not a new program, one of the many programs the Organization operates in its efforts to support Veterans and their Families - one of many programs that we work diligently on and expand whenever we get requests from Posts or members. Once leased or purchased, we set about a plan to renovate, construct or modify these buildings to suit the UVBH operation.
We ask for members, Veterans and volunteers to travel to these areas, sometimes remote, and we supply accommodations, meals, tools, building materials and equipment to make these renovations possible. In most instances, transportation will be arranged. There are many days of hard work and toil, however, there are many days of working with other members, other Veterans and volunteers with one purpose - assisting Veterans. There is a great feeling of being a part of a program that assists just a small portion of the over 300,000 U.S Homeless Veterans who have no permanent residence and need a hand up and not a hand out.
Want to help Veterans? Are you physically capable of doing something? Can you paint? Do concrete work, plumbing, electrical or put up sheet rock or do demolition? Clean up? Do you have time to travel for a couple of weeks? If you don't have any skills we will teach you!
Make a call and register your availability and participation. Our next working bees will be in South Dakota renovating buildings for Native American Homeless Veterans.
