Veteran's Get Involved
"It's is one of the beautiful compensations of life, that no man can sincerely help another without helping himself." –Ralph Waldo Emerson
VTH has been fortunate to be able to serve veterans in the South Coast area through the support of our community. In turn, we look for ways to involve our residents with organizations and events that will benefit the community. Recent connections include:
Southeastern Massachusetts Time Exchange
VTH recently joined the Southeastern Massachusetts Time Exchange, an effort that allows area individuals and organizations to exchange services and skills. When one Time Exchange member performs an hour of a service for another, they receive credit for that hour, called a 'Time Credit'. That member can then use the Time Credit to receive a service from another member within the system.
Operation Clean Sweep
VTH partners with Operation Clean Sweep every year to provide the community with a clean and healthy environment. This organization organizes a series of cleanups throughout the city of New Bedford from April through September. VTH is happy to announce that we will be hosting the Ward 3 Cleanup on August 17th 2013. If you are interested in volunteering for this or other cleanups please go to their website or click their logo on the side to RSVP.
