We will show the Veterans our appreciation by volunteering our time to hand out Home of the Brave T-shirts, thank you notes, and visiting with Veterans. Volunteers will need to arrive at the Des Moines VA by 9:15am. Park in lot 6- near the North Main Entrance. We will gather at the main entrance and then travel to the information desk located within the main entrance at 9:30am. We will then report to VA Volunteer Services. We will commence to hand out T-shirts, thank you notes, and miscellaneous supplies for the Veterans. We will visit and thank the veterans. Plan to work until all items have been handed out (there are approximately 200 Veterans). Prepare for 6 hours total (9:30am-3:30pm), or until everything is handed out- whichever comes first. Please bring your own sack lunch. You’re welcome to wear jeans or khakis, a Volunteer T-shirt will be provided to you that day.

If you would like to provide a donation as well as volunteering your time; here are a few items the Veterans need:
• Hair brushes
• Men’s deodorant
• Denture Adhesive Crème
• Toothpaste
• Shaving Cream
• Hard Candy, or individually wrapped treats

Please keep track of all donated items and report them to your Home of the Brave Site Coordinator, before they are handed out on Nov. 14.

Thank you so much, looking forward to a great day!
