Volunteers of America, which serves approximately 28,000 vulnerable people each year throughout Pennsylvania, will honor Scott Weaver, president of APR Supply Company, at a Tribute Dinner on Thursday, June 4, from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Hershey Country Club in Hershey. Mr. Weaver is being recognized as a prominent community leader and a driving force in the region’s plumbing and HVAC wholesale industry. His philanthropic efforts in support of Volunteers of America and other local nonprofit organizations make him a very deserving honoree.
Please join us starting April 1st as we kick off our Homeward Bound 30-30-30 campaign to house homeless veterans! Our goal is to inspire 10,000 people to give $30 during the 30 days of April to purchase 30 houses across PA for homeless veterans and their families! The words homeless and veteran should never appear in the same sentence...please visit our Facebook page tomorrow for the GoFundMe site and share with your friends and family! Together we will make a difference in the lives of homeless veterans across PA.
Upwards of 25 homeless military veterans in Northeastern Pennsylvania could get a chance to buy their own house in coming years thanks to a new Volunteers Of America plan to buy and rehabilitate 150 residences statewide.
“We looked at eight houses here today,” VOA Pennsylvania CEO Melissa Vayda said during a stop at the agency’s thrift store on Wilkes-Barre’s South Main Street. “We’ll probably make offers on three or four.”
