Weifield is doing Veterans events in all regions this summer! In July and August, our Rocky Mountain Precon teams are hosting Volunteers of America events with 3 – 4 clients & partners and 6 – 7 Weifield volunteers, each (with the exception of the Cornhole event on 7/21/22 – we will have 15 volunteers in total, for that event). If you are interested in participating, please contact Dora Harrell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Tennessee and Texas teams also have veterans events planned – watch for more details soon!
