VA Butler Healthcare employees donate items for homeless Veterans during the VA2K Walk & Roll Event.

 

VA Butler Healthcare recently held its first annual VA2K Walk & Roll event to promote wellness and benefit local homeless Veterans. 133 employees walked and rolled in the event, as well as several Veterans, volunteers, and members of the community.

“The VA2K was an enjoyable experience where we could work together to benefit homeless Veterans,” said VA Butler employee Danielle Weisenstein. “I will be looking forward to our next event!”

A total of 155 VA facilities nationwide participated in this event and VA Butler Healthcare alone raised $778 in donations for homeless Veterans. The generous donations included cash, gift certificates, clothing, personal care items, food, backpacks, and household items for homeless Veterans. VA employees across the nation showed their strength in numbers … and lots of heart at this worthwhile event.

“It was an honor to do something like this for our homeless Veterans considering everything our Veterans have done for our country,” said VA Butler employee Tracey Custer.

VA Butler Healthcare offers a wide array of special programs and initiatives specifically designed to help homeless Veterans live as self-sufficiently and independently as possible.  VA’s major homeless-specific programs constitute the largest integrated network of homeless treatment and assistance services in the country.
