Later this week #VOAFL Miami, Florida team members will begin to assemble uniforms and backpacks full of supplies for formerly homeless children in our program. This wouldn't be possible without the support of our amazing donors!
There is still time to contribute to this extremely important cause. Allow students to begin school with everything they need!

Calling all Nova Southeastern University - Tampa Campus students, faculty and staff!
Sadly, the #VOAFL pantry at the #Hillsborough program is empty and we need your help. #NSU has graciously allowed us to place a donation box in the front entrance for easy access to drop off suggested items. These donations will go on to assist previously homeless Tampa Veterans and their family. Anything you can give will be much appreciated!
