Give Thanks Campaign

The Give Thanks Campaign will recognize all of our generous donors within the last fiscal year. Because of your help FY 16 has been a huge success for Volunteers of America Delaware Valley. From providing 60 apartment starter kits for those transitioning out of our shelters to helping over 600 families during the holidays, your help has given hope to hundreds of people in our community. And as FY 16 comes to a close we want to take the time to acknowledge your selfless giving, as well as update you on our goals and projects for FY 17.

From June 6th through June 17th VOADV staff will dedicate our time to building a strong relationship with you. Our purpose is to familiarize you with our organization, inform you on the many ways your contribution has helped those we serve, as well as give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
