Welcome to all new members who have joined the club and hello to all who are interested.
To give some quick background, this club is open to everyone, which means you don't have to be a veteran to join.
Help veterans in need (charity or personal)
Raise money for charity organizations associated with veterans
Raise money for organizations I.E the West Springfield Veterans Center
Host events for veterans, I.E. cookouts, Movie Nights (with projectors outside), social events. (many veterans become loners and need help socializing)
FUNDRAISER IDEAS FOR CLUB FUNDS:
Game night- I.E. board games with a 5 dollar donation to play for a couple hours as well as Dungeons and dragons roleplay adventure, yes i'm also a Dungeon Master lol! also can sell snacks and waters or sodas for a $1
Kissing/play date- i have a few family dogs including my own who love to play and maybe partner with a local shelter to allow people on campus to play with dogs for a small donation.
Bake sale- request baked goods donations and resale for club donations. or purchase, make and sell individual pieces, return investment and donate rest to the club.
Help in the Community ideas
establish a program where vets can work with horses/bond/ride free of charge
visit the Holyoke Soldiers home and visit with vets who otherwise wouldn't have much interaction.
Possibly have a speaker come and present to groups with request for donations
What this club is:
This club is a way for people to give back to the people who have served us as a country and as a whole. For me it's personal and it maybe for you as well, but it doesn't have to be. If you have a good heart and want to help you have a place here. together we can touch many lives. It is my hope to not only get the support of SC, the community, but also local business and corporations to become more socially responsible.
