Operation Heroes - Valor Home

Written by

You'll be hearing us talking a lot about the Harry Donovan, Jr. Valor Home in the coming weeks. It will all be a part of our week-long fundraiser we're calling "Operation Heroes." The staff had a chance to visit their Akron facility on Exeter Road today to learn more about what they do. Valor Home is a transitional housing program for homeless male veterans. The residents there take part in "structured therapies such as art, music, and life skills." Valor Home's mission is to "support homeless veterans who are looking to achieve self sufficiency as they seek to secure and maintain permanent housing." WONE's Operation Heroes fundraising campaign will be held the week of December 9th and will culminate with our two-day live broadcast from our lobby on December 13th and 14th. As in year's past, we will be asking for donations but unlike before, the donations we need will be strictly monetary and/or gift cards which really come in handy. And rest assured, 100% of the money you give will go directly to programs that help feed and house homeless veterans and provide transportation to those seeking employment. "Support Our Troops" is a statement we see a lot these days. This will be a great opportunity to do just that. Stay tuned to 97.5 WONE for further details on this event that we here are all excited and humbled to take part in.
