Today we welcome Brandon Skolnick and Dave Winchell to From Boots 2 Biz Radio talking about our Veterans sponsored project for Habitat for Humanity. Our group has formed the Veterans After-Action Coalition: Habitat for Humanity Project to build a home for a deserving, low income veteran and family in the Atlanta suburbs. This will become an annual program.
It’s our time to help our heroes in need, find out how you can give back to an Atlanta based Veteran as we discuss our Habitat project launching this fall. Be a part of this important event by joining the effort to collect necessary funding or volunteer your labor on a weekend to assist in the building phase.
The Veterans After-Action Coalition (VAAC) was organized in 2013 by both Veterans and civilian members. The group works with several individuals and organizations in the Atlanta area who are dedicated to providing resources and connections aimed at assisting Veteran men and women in the community. VAAC hosts and participates in several group meetings and round table discussions with topics that are useful to Vets in the metro Atlanta area.
The latest VAAC project joins the Habitat for Humanity organization, where our members will be organizing an Atlanta based home build for a qualifying Veteran. The fundraising portion of the project is set to launch now, continuing until the end of 2013 and will be comprised of several different fundraising events in the community. Financial support is crucial for the project to take place, so the VAAC has set up easily accessible portals where supporters can donate. As with all Habitat for Humanity builds, the homes can’t be built without the helping hands of the community and VAAC will be recruiting hard workers for the eventual construction. With successful backing from sponsors, contributors and willing workers, the project is set to begin construction by spring of 2014.
