Winterfest at Cal Vets
Make gifts and visit veterans! Spread cheer by making cocoa mug gifts, scarves, keychains, and cards while visiting with residents housed at Cal Vets.
CalVet has a residential program that offers affordable long-term care to aged and disabled veterans as well as their eligible spouses and domestic partners. Honoring these non-profit partners reminds us that while Veterans’ Day is in November, veterans’ issues are ongoing and deserve attention all year. We will meet in person on Saturday, December 3rd for this outdoor event to put together cocoa kits with mugs, make scarves and key chains, and visit with the veterans who live at CalVets. It was a great event for all of those who participated last year, and the vets cannot wait for us to return!
Veterans look forward to the companionship and fun that FAVE families bring to their winter events. Families truly bring holiday cheer to Cal Vets! Resource Library: Click here to find resources to learn about this cause.
