Our Old Guard Outreach Projects at the VA Hospitals and Veteran Centers is an ongoing project that many of our Dads do as part of our Community Service Commitment to keep up our 501 non-profit status.
Old Guard Outreach Projects
The Blue & Gold Christmas Party at the Jerry L. Pettis Memorial VA Medical Center (Loma Linda Veterans Hospital) is just one example of Old Guard Outreach events sponsored by Gold Star Dads of America and our awesome Blue Star Moms volunteers and community volunteers.
We also do regular “Fellowship Visits” where we bring the donuts and coffee early in the AM for the vets arriving for daily treatment.
These events are also a great way to help the survivors network with other Gold Star Families and at the same time give back to the men & women who have served to keep this country free for over 230 years.
Gold Star Dads also sponsors an Old Guard Veterans Appreciation Dinner. This years event will be held at the Arbor Terrace at Kingwood, Texas and will celebrate the lives of 35 WWII & Korean War Veterans who currently live there.
The Old Guard Veterans Appreciation Dinner is an “Invitation Only Event” with a $100 Donation per couple. If you live in the Kingwood/Houston area and would like to join us please use this contact form.Thank You for your interest in attending one of our Private Invitation Only Events. These are special events open to a limited number of Invited Guests. We only ask that you make a small donation to help with our expenses.
If you would also like to help with the event please leave a phone number in the notes section. If we can answer any of your questions or concerns just ask. You can contact us via telephone at 951-833-2935 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How Can I Help and Serve the Old Guard Community
Make no mistake, the offer of fellowship and prayer is no small matter to these men and women. Just knowing that their efforts made a difference and that their sacrifice is appreciated goes a long way in helping them cope with the stress of their golden years.
If you are looking for a place to serve please consider volunteering your time with Gold Star Dads of America. Our Military Veteran Outreach programs are ideal for Families and Father & Son Fellowship.
