About

For the past 23 years the Veterans' Holiday Celebration has served many thousands of veterans with a homemade holiday meal, care packages and live entertainment featuring Jim Belushi and The Sacred Hearts. Volunteers are needed on Friday, December 2-Sunday, December 4. Last year the event attracted more than 900 dedicated and talented volunteers that helped make our event a huge success. Volunteer opportunities include: food preparation and service, assistance for disabled veterans day of event, making decorations and site setup. Volunteers will also help with logistics, registration, entertainment, security, preparation and distribution of thousands of care packages to veterans, photography, veteran outreach, a Spirit team that visits veterans in the hospital, clean up and pack up of event site and so much more. This is a truly rewarding experience.

Volunteers are asked to work four-hour shifts. For more information with pictures and videos of past events, please go to www.VHCevent.org.
