Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, VEAP has made the difficult decision of postponing our spring Gala to the fall of 2020. While this places a considerable burden on our financial operations for the spring, the safety and health of our staff, visitors and volunteers is our number one priority at this time.
Please mark your calendar for the new date of our fall event: Friday, November 13, 2020.
In these difficult times, VEAP is counting on our network of supporters now more than ever. Here are some ways to get involved, in lieu of attending our spring gala:
Make an early gift. VEAP’s gala is our biggest fundraising event of the year and we’ll need your financial support more than ever to weather this unprecedented crisis. As demand for our food and social services resources increases, your donation will directly support a community member in great need. $100 will feed 30 people for a whole week!
Start a Facebook Fundraiser for VEAP. It’s easy and free for you and VEAP. Get your friends and family engaged in supporting the fight against hunger.
Select VEAP your charity of choice on Amazon Smile. Support us every time you place an order on Amazon. Visit smile.amazon.com and select VEAP as your charity of choice. Then bookmark the Amazon Smile page and use it every time you make an order. VEAP will get a percentage back from all your purchases!
Donate food. VEAP is actively seeking food donations of shelf-stable products, particularly whole grain cereals, pasta (spaghetti is a favorite of many visitors) and low-sodium soups. Our volunteers are accepting donations around the back of our building.
Volunteer. If you are healthy and have time to spare, join us in VEAP’s Warehouse or as a Van Driver making food deliveries to seniors and those with limited mobility. We’re ensuring the safety of all volunteers by minimizing contact and practicing 6 foot social distancing at all times. Fill out our application online now.
Thank you for your support!
