THE STORY:

Southern Maryland Vacations for Vets is a non profit organization created to give our wounded or sick military service members, from local military hospitals and treatment centers, a chance to relax with their families away from the hospital.

Vacation for Veterans offers a long overdue mental and physical boost for the service members while recovering from extensive  medical treatments.  The vacations are offered by donors who have vacation properties available for the service members to enjoy in many different settings.  Our vacation homes have been located in tropical places like Kona, Hawaii, and very cold and scenic spots like Juneau, Alaska.

To date, we have provided fully paid vacations for 132 wounded veterans and their families.  This has been made possible by over 60 volunteers who provide for the service members in many ways.  Not only do we receive vacation home donations for shorts stays, but we also receive monetary donations as well.

Some of the annual events that we like to host to support our  Veterans are:

  • Annual Quarter Auction-Lots of volunteers donate their products and services to our service members and members of the public are invited to attend the event.  It's a fun  filled evening of bidding for great items like jewerly, baskets, massages, theatre tickets, and lots of different gift cards.
  • Restaurant Benefit Dinners at the local restaurants like Outback, Texas Roadhouse, and Olive Garden.   20% of the profits for that night go back to our charity -YEAH!!!!!!
  • Poker Nights at the local firehouse-Another fun filled evening for adults, great food, entertainment, and lots of cash prizes to win.

All of these events help us reach our goal to provide service members with the vacation experience of a lifetime!.  It's our chance to give back to those service members who have given their lives for our freedom!!
