Our goal for the proceeds for all our fundraising monies are always returned to the Veterans at the VA hospital in Lebanon. The VA Angels work with the extended care Vets in Bldg.1, 5th floor, we also provide a picnic once a year for all the patients at the hospital with our money that we raise. Our organization is here to work for and with the Veterans, that is why we give back to them in all ways, as they have given to us. Thank you!
