My name is Meredith Fick and I work with the Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) located in Lanham, MD.
Every year, DVNF hosts a Veterans Resource Fair. Unfortunately, we hadn’t been able to have our event since 2019. However, this year we are excited to announce its return! Our event, in honor of Veterans Day, recognizes the service and sacrifice of all veterans by collaborating with local government and nonprofit organizations to provide critical resources. DC, Maryland, and Virginia employment and education officials will be in attendance, as well as several nonprofits that offer services to veterans. The resources include job recruiting, information on benefits, recreational therapy, and much more. We’re so excited to relaunch our annual event and are hosting the resource fair on Thursday, November 10th in honor of Veterans Day. It will take place at the Silver Spring Civic Center from 9 am-2:30 pm. Please see the attached flyer for more information!
In addition to these useful resources, veterans who attend can receive:
• Free, Brand-New Suits – Brand new business attire (for men and women), intended for job-seeking veterans, made possible by Joseph A.
Bank, a corporate partner of DVNF.
• Free Meal and Free Groceries
• Comfort Kits – From DVNF’s Health & Comfort program, to provide immediate relief to veterans facing financial and housing insecurity.
• Gift Cards
• Raffle Items
At this event, we are looking to provide as many resources as possible to the at-risk and disabled veterans who attend the event and would love to have you join us! To make this event a success, we’d like organizations like yours to host a vendor table at the event. There is no cost to participate. We just want to provide as many free or low-cost resources to as many Veterans as possible. If you’re interested in being a part of this event, please use the link below to register.
We also ask that you help us spread the word about our event to any Veteran you may encounter. They can also pre-register (though not required) using the link below.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions or would like more information.
