In 2021 the Veterans Helping Veterans (VHV) organization of Homestead, PA will kick off the first of their annual Veteran Wellness Festival & Memorial Motorcycle Run. The festival will have the renowned OVN's Veterans Village, full of support organizations, entertainment, prize drawings, food, fun, and much more!! The motorcycle run will be a round trip from the Waterfront to the National Cemetary of the Alleghanies.

So, we are looking for Veterans, military, family members, and those in the community that has a passion to help our veterans! The duty is helping set-up a street festival, helping direct traffic, park cars, hand out information, etc... so it's just general support we need not specific skills required.

If anyone would like to help in promoting or marketing the event, simply putting up flyers, sharing on social media, etc... please let us know as we can always use more help!

Please note: All workers must comply with any state required COVID-19 preventive measures implemented, while our vent is vital in helping our veterans, everyone's safety is just as important. (Details will be provided when we get closer to event day)
