To our Phenix Legacy volunteers, service members, and their families:
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, we are witnessing the virus affect many in our communities. Specifically, our older population and those with chronic medical conditions.
After careful consideration and in consultation with our service members, family members, volunteers, and community partners, it is with a heavy heart that we postpone our volunteer initiatives and weekly events until further notice. The events and initiatives directly affected are the following:
Veteran Visits: Volunteers and veterans visit veterans who are residents at local and VA Nursing Homes. Volunteers spend an hour with these heroes, who have served in all branches of our military and all eras of service, with the goal of positive engagement for the residents. This program was designed to build camaraderie amongst all who have served this country and community.
Phenix Legacy Weekly Coffee Social: A weekly Coffee Social hosted at Jesse Brown VA to reconnect veterans with fellow veterans. Here, groups are facilitated as veterans learn about available resources and services, both in the VA and the community; engage with community partners, and establish relationships with veterans from all military branches and all eras of service.
All scheduled and future events.
These programming cancelations are made as a precautionary measure as we do not know of any confirmed cases in the areas that we have operated in. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you updated on changes as more information becomes available. To meet the needs of our communities, we are currently developing programs for remote engagement.
To keep our communities safe and mitigate the spread, please heed CDC guidance on what you should know.
Last, I would like to personally thank all of our sponsors, donors, community partners, organizations, and all of the volunteers that have been instrumental in our reach. Thank you for all of your incredible support and your contributions to our mission.
Support those who serve the community and country.
