On behalf of LSVA, I would like to thank you for all the Volunteer support we have received in the past few months. Without your hard work and support there would be no US!
We will have one off Volunteer opportunities that we will come across. Please be on the lookout for email updates from me.
Without the Committee Volunteers, we could not accomplish near what we have been achieving. We always have room for anyone that would like to get involved with Events or Marketing and PR. We meet over lunch hours at Combined Arms and have a lot to do with the big Veteran’s month Picnic coming up!
I want to extend a special Thank You to our Committee Volunteers! We could not complete all that we are working on without the volunteers in our committees. We have a Marketing Committee, with a mission of establishing a consistent LSVA brand that creates a public awarementss of LSVA in a positive, quick, responding, informative way. We are working on this newsletter, a corporate video, social media, whatever we can improve in the LSVA Marketing/PR world.
We also have an Events Advisory Committee, with a mission of creating memorable events, including as many veterans and their families as possible, while raising funds to create more events. We are working on Operation Backpack, The Veteran’s Month Kick-off Picnic and Operation Lone Star Santa. We value the members of these committees, and have room for many more. We have a lot to do and appreciate all that want to help.
Come out and learn more about what is going on for veterans in Houston. We have some of the most innovation programming and organizations in the country serving and supporting the veteran community. This is a great chance to get some situational awareness on what is going on, and more importantly, how you can get involved.
It’s not just LSVA that needs volunteers; all non-profits need talented and passionate volunteers to fulfill our mission to build the veteran community and serve one another. This event is open to veterans of any era, family members, and civilians. The only requirement is that you are passionate about volunteering and supporting veterans.
Our desired end state is for the LSVA volunteer program to be a force multiplier for all organizations we work with and create a community of veteran leadership that is recognized statewide. Veterans are graduates of the greatest leadership training in the world’s greatest military; this is the first step in becoming servant leaders in your own community.
We have begun working with Levy Restaurants and participating in the Volunteer Concessions at the Toyota Center and BBVA Compass Stadium. Funds raised during these events are going towards building our Volunteer Recognition Program. Here are the next events that we plan to participate in:
• Saturday July 8th – Houston Dash (BBVA)
• Saturday July 15th – Houston Dash/Kendrick Lamar Concert (BBVA/Toyota)
• Saturday July 29th – Houston Dynamo (BBVA) Spouse’s Group fundraiser
If you are interested in Volunteering for this event you will need to be TABC and Food handling certified, as well as a background check. LSVA will cover the cost of the certifications.
We will also begin training for our Volunteer Tuesdays and Volunteer From Home opportunities by reaching out to our new and existing members. We need to keep all of our members informed of our resources. We could use your help.
