Virtual Service Fair for Veterans, Military Families and the Community
On May 5 from 9am to 1pm, United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region is presenting a virtual service fair that will offer the chance for veterans, military families and community members to have the opportunity to connect with more than 20 nonprofit organizations including several that serve veterans and military families. By offering a safe and virtual volunteer fair we hope you can learn of the different volunteer opportunities right here in our community! Veterans, military families and community members are all welcome to attend. Organizations will also connect attendees to programs and services available in the community for those who may be experiencing financial hardship. Participants will have a chance to meet dozens of community leaders in a small virtual group setting. We look forward to seeing you there!

By signing up for the RoundUp App, your change can truly help change a veteran’s life. Unfortunately, life after military service can be quite difficult for veterans. According to research conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, it is estimated that roughly 40,056 veterans are homeless on any given day. They are also at risk of developing substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, and poverty due to their lack of resources after discharge. Help United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region assist our local veterans by signing up to “RoundUp.” Your donations will go toward programs to provide legal services and help prevent homelessness for our local veterans.
See how easy it is to make your change count in this short video.
