(Washington, D.C.) – Vietnam Veterans of America's (VVA) Household Goods
Program, the organization's main funding mechanism, has added a new feature
in its Colorado operations: donation trailers in communities. The new
trailers are in addition to the organization's longstanding practice of
picking up clothing and household items at individual homes.
"This will make it easier for folks to donate items," said
VVA national President Thomas H. Corey. "We work every day for the rights,
benefits, and services that America's veterans have earned by serving our
country. We have been able to fund many of these services through the
generosity of people who donate to our Household Goods Program.
"We are adding this new feature to help us continue this
work. We ask people who have clothing and household items to donate to call
our toll-free number, and we will either schedule a pickup or direct them to
the nearest VVA donation trailer.
"VVA works with 68 affiliated thrift stores in 29 states. The
toll-free number is 800-775-8387. For additional information, a public
service announcement is available at
