Donation for the LA County Veteran Community

As COVID-19 continues to spread, the future has never felt so unpredictable.  These are challenging times for us all, and we hope you’re in good spirits and health!  Right now, we’re doing everything possible to sustain daily operations and provide services to our veteran community.  While there’s a lot of uncertainty, we know that we need to adapt fast to our changing reality.  Now, more than ever, our veteran community needs us. And we need you.

On behalf of the 264,635 U.S. military veterans living in Los Angeles County, we humbly ask that your company make a donation to the Veterans and Youth Career Collaborative for the purpose of addressing food, housing and transportation insecurities as well as veteran scholarships for training and other supportive services.  We can effectively address these issues and more for our veterans with your donation of $2,500 or more.  The veteran community comprises about 3.5 percent of the county’s civilian population age 18 years or older. Although the veteran population in Los Angeles County comprises only about 1.4 percent of the entire veteran population in the nation, it is the largest veteran population of any U.S. county.

The VYCC serves as an independent nonprofit organization source for No-Cost Vocational Training and a Career Resource Center for our military veterans and youths community. As an independent nonprofit organization, we are affiliated with and partnered with multiple Veteran Service Program organizations. Included in the partnership are both governmental and civilian sectors as part of the Veteran and Youth WorkForce Services industry.

In times like this, we’re reminded of how interconnected we all are. Thank you for being part of our community. Without you, none of it is possible.  Please, contact me at 323.457.6841 so we can discuss a partnership and your donation.

Stay safe and well,

Nelson Varas, Founder & Executive Director, Capt. ARNG, USMC ret.
