Restoring Valor: A Fundraising Dinner and Art/Wine Auction for Deported Veterans
PLEASE JOIN US
The Friends of DVSH Partnership, in conjunction with The Veterans for Peace invite you to an evening of world-class art and dining in support of the Deported Veterans Support House of Tijuana.
The Deported Veterans Support House is a not-for-profit facility that provides shelter, food, counseling and resources for honorably discharged deported U.S. Veterans in Tijuana. A self-sustaining institution, the House depends on the generosity of donations from organizations within the US Veteran community, as well as other 501(c)3 organizations to provide for the basic human needs of our deported heroes.
Funds raised through RESTORING VALOR are earmarked for the purchase a van that will be used to transport US veteran volunteers visiting from the US to the facility, for the transport of donations from the border, as well as for the transport of house residents to medical appointments; additional funds raised will be used to pay rent for the facility, thus allowing DVSH staff to continue working on corrective legislation.
