A Call to Action: 2012 Operation Holiday

Our veterans and military families need our help now more than ever. With unemployment at an all time high, veterans are having a tough time moving from military service to civilian life. To honor their commitment to our country, we seek your help to make a difference during the holidays. Operation Holiday is one of the ways that we honor their service.

For the past three years, the San Fernando Valley Veterans Employment Committee has provided veterans and their families with toys, clothing, and a complete dinner during the holiday season. Given the current economic environment, our goal is to help as many veterans as possible. To carry out this task, we need your help.

2012 Operation Holiday Wish List:

  • $50 donation (becomes a complete Holiday Dinner for a veteran/family)
  • Gift cards (Target, Wal-Mart, Toys-R-Us; Von’s, etc.)
  • Donation of new, unwrapped toys and non-perishable food items

If you wish to take part in our 2012 Operation Holiday, volunteer, or make a financial donation online, you may do so at the link below.

The San Fernando Valley Veterans Employment Committee (SFV|VEC) is an organization dedicated to providing veterans and military families with employment related help. They work in partnership with various federal and state agencies, employers, training institutions and nonprofit entities. They also host and organize events geared toward connecting veteran job seekers to employment opportunities and social services throughout the year.

The San Fernando Valley Veterans Employment Committee operates under a fiscal sponsorship with the Los Angeles Veterans Employment Committee, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Accordingly, your donations are tax-deductible.
