2016-2017 Service Project – VLPWA

(Veteran’s Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania)

The mission of Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania is to provide essential housing, employment, and vital support services to eligible local Veterans, service members, and their families with the goal of improving their self-sufficiency, sustainability, and quality of life.

PROJECT UPDATE
(01/20/2017)

The Beaver County Chapter will be presenting the Veterans and their families with Valentine’s Gift Baskets on February 14th.
 
The East Chapter is planning an activity in May.
 
The time for transitioning a new veteran into the Ingram House should be drawing near.  When this is scheduled to occur, we will need a “Transition Team” whose responsibility will be to set-up the house for the new veteran.  That would entail taking from the items WBN members have previously donated and stocking the house with food and cleaning items, as well as, making the beds and setting up the bathroom.
 
If your chapter would like to make up the “Transition Team” or would like to plan an activity for St. Patrick’s Day or Easter, please contact Peggy Bianchi at peggy6853@gmail.com or (724) 989-2092.  All calls go through Peggy…do not contact Project Journey directly.
Other options for your Chapter:

  • Sponsor a Shopping Spree at the Treasure House
  • Host a Pizza Party for women and children
  • Hold a Pampering Party for the female Veterans and activities for the children.
  • Provide tickets to a concert, show or sporting event.
  • Provide gift cards to local restaurants.
  • Provide a catered meal. If your Chapter is planning an activity, please contact Peggy Bianchi at peggy6853@gmail.com for more information and to co-ordinate with Project Journey. Please do not contact Project Journey directly.

Any parties would be held at the VLPWPA headquarters. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO KEEP PEGGY BIANCHI INFORMED OF WHAT YOUR CHAPTER IS PLANNING.
