Six years ago, on Nov. 10, 2011, Friends of the Soldiers Home began working to connect veterans of the Armed Forces Retirement Home-DC with the community.

Since that evening we organized volunteers more than 250 times — now four times each month  — for activities with residents. Three annual festivals bring 5,000 community members to campus.

Your financial support makes this possible.

Thank you
