DECORATE A VET

Local People and Local Companies Helping Local Veterans Beautify and decorate their homes for the holidays

Decorate A Vet is dedicated to bringing together local individuals and local companies in the vicinity of Falls Church, VA 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’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 owner.  Jones of Classic Stonescaping & Gardens, LLC sought to use his expertise and success to assist our nations’ heroes in the local community. With support with America Legion Post 130 in Falls Church, he partnered with local businessmen Moe Jafari of Human Touch, LLC and David Tax of Clare and Don’s Beach Shack to serve local veterans.  John Wasp of CBRE has recently joined the Board of Directors.
