When HVAF board member Louise Loyd teamed up with Dee and John Cazares of Bethel United Methodist Church, they had one goal in mind: to raise money for homeless veterans at HVAF. With help from the church community, they raised $1,000 for HVAF.
“While there are services to help military veterans, many returning troops still face homelessness and chronic unemployment, and we wanted to help contribute in any way we could,” says Dee Cazares, a Bethel United Methodist Church member.
Members of the west Indianapolis church held a food and clothing drive for HVAF last year and wanted to do more.
“We were thinking about putting together a patriotic mission and asked her if HVAF would be interested in building a service around HVAF,” adds Dee.
The program was so well received the congregation plans to do it again next year.
HVAF welcomes individual volunteers as well as employee groups and faith groups to assist us with events, special projects, and community outreach. For a list of upcoming opportunities go to hvaf.org.
