Put Your Heart Into It

5th Annual VNA Fundraising Event

This February, our community is coming together to address the urgent needs of food-insecure seniors in our county. Local businesses have stepped up, aligning with our cause to bring visibility and vital funding to this pressing issue. Throughout the month, these businesses will offer special promotions, exclusive deals, and donation matching programs. By patronizing these establishments, you not only support local commerce but also contribute directly to our mission.

But the impact doesn’t end there — direct donations to our cause play a pivotal role. Whether it’s attending our events or senior center, participating in online fundraisers, or making a one-time contribution, every dollar makes a difference. Let’s unite, shop local, and put our hearts into building a stronger, more compassionate community. Join us in our never ending mission.
