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.
2016 Gold Star Dads also sponsored an Old Guard Veterans Appreciation Dinner. The event was held at the Arbor Terrace at Kingwood, Texas and celebrated the lives of 35 WWII & Korean War Veterans who currently live there.
Each year 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 for 2017’s Event please Join Our Mailing List or use this contact form below.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.
