Dear Friends,

Seven years ago, Friends of the Soldiers Home began working to connect veterans of the Armed Forces Retirement Home-DC with the community.

Since then, we organized volunteers more than 300 times for activities. Three annual festivals bring 5,000 community members to campus.

Your financial support makes this possible.

As we prepare to mark Giving Tuesday, consider supporting our year-end campaign by clicking “donate” on friendsofsoldiers.org or with a check to Friends of the Soldiers Home, P.O. Box 3170, Washington, DC 20010.

Your donations help us organize volunteers for events for the elderly veterans, such as Bowling Night and Jingo; they keep our festivals free; and they assist with the cost of food, drink and entertainment at our monthly Saloon Night for residents.

Thanks for your support!
