Junior Activities

Our 2020-2021 Department of Ohio Junior President remains Samantha Altman. She has chosen an awesome Department of Ohio Junior Project for the 2020-2021 Year. Her “Color Your World” project involves donating adult and children coloring books, markers, colored pencils, crayons, puzzles, etc. Items will be put together in individual bags which will be donated to the various Veteran facilities throughout Ohio and to our Homebound Veterans. During this pandemic, feeling isolated is very real issue and the goal is to provide a calming activity to remind our Veterans we appreciate and care about their well-being.

The Cincinnati VA Medical Center continues to thank you for your generosity in giving back to our American heroes. Currently, our community partner is unable to fulfill our food pantry order with all of the items that are needed. As such, we would like to ask for your assistance with our efforts to ensure that our 3 food pantries are able to provide the protein items in short supply.
