BENEFITING: DECORATE A VET INC

EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016

THE STORY:

Decorate A Vet is dedicated to bringing together local individuals and local companies in the Northern Virginia area to assist those who have helped us live freer lives. The mission of Decorate A Vet is to improve the quality of life of area veterans through the repair and beautification of their residences. Many veterans are physically unable to perform basic household and yard chores such as cleaning gutters, trimming brush and maintaining landscapes. As a result of their service to our country, many also require structural changes to the outsides of their homes, including wheelchair ramps and handrails for which carpentry or masonry is necessary, to accommodate mobility impairments. Decorate A Vet is dedicated to assisting our local Northern Virginia veterans to make such repairs, beautify their homes, yards, and communities. Decorate A Vet’s primary outreach activity is its annual Decorating Event to repair, restore and refresh the yards and exteriors of veterans’ homes. With a gathering of individual and business volunteers, DAV provides needed repairs to the housing structure and maintenance to the surrounding yard. Additionally, the outside of the houses are decorated and beautified for the holiday season. Decorate A Vet, a 501©3 charitable organization, was founded in November 2010 by Jeffrey W. Jones a Falls Church business owners. Jones of Classic Stonescaping & Gardens, LLC sought to use his expertise and success to assist our nations’ heroes in their local community. With support from the America Legion Post 130 in Falls Church, Jones partnered with local businessmen Moe Jafari, Human Touch, LLC and David Tax, Clare and Don’s Beach Shack to serve local veterans. Currently John Wasp from CBRE has joined the mission.

In loving memory of my husband, Roger Neighborgall; and with gratitude to your organization for putting some joy in an otherwise sad 2016 holiday season following Roger's death. Roger loved Christmas decorations, the more the better . I firmly believe he could see the bright and beautiful decorations you placed in our yard from his perch in heaven. I hope this donation will help you bring holiday joy to someone else this year. 9 months ago
