Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
Disabled Veterans National Foundation, a non-profit veterans service organization that focuses on helping men and women who serve and return home wounded or sick after defending our safety and our freedom, announces that it will attend a July 21 health and wellness expo in Flint, Michigan. The event, hosted by Community Outreach for Family & Youth (COFY), will offer health, wellness, and fitness services to low-income community members of Flint and the surrounding area.
A major part of the event will consist of specialized services specifically for veterans. COFY expects approximately 1,500 veterans to attend the event. DVNF will take part in the convention, offering employment, budgeting, and nutrition services to low-income veterans of the Flint community. In addition, DVNF will hand out several hundred care kits throughout the day.
“We are really excited to attend this event and offer our services to the veterans of Flint,” said Raegan Rivers, Chief Administrative Officer of DVNF. “This region of Michigan has truly been impacted by a stagnant economy and the veterans of the area have not been an exception to this sad reality. DVNF is hoping to be able to offer valuable counsel to these vets.”
The event will take place July 21, 2012 from 11am-3pm and will host health, wellness and fitness workshops for attendees in the hopes of empowering members of the community to live healthier, more engaging lives. In addition, veterans attending the event will receive free health and wellness screenings.
