VFW Selects Post 1 as #StillServing Post of the Month
VFW Post 1 was selected by the Veterans of Foreign Wars as the May 2021 #StillServing Post of the Month.
This incredibly meaningful recognition calls attention to Post 1’s innovative programming and opportunities for veterans in the Denver-metro area to continue serving their community and country.
VFW Post 1 is honored for #StillServing, especially given the challenges during this past year. While in-person activities are limited, Post 1 is being renovated with members doing most of the work themselves. Yoga sessions hosted at the Post were moved to a virtual format in partnership with Comeback Yoga in Denver. Veterans can attend for free, but donations are accepted and given to the Post 1 Relief Fund to help local veterans in need. Post 1 also has a partnership with the Healing Warriors Program, a nonprofit that helps improve wellness for veterans in an effort to prevent suicide.
In addition, they have continued operating the Veteran’s Arts Council (VAC), a nonprofit founded by Post 1 to provide community and opportunity for veterans. The VAC showcases and mentors veteran artists working in any medium. The VAC works with a select number of civilian artists as well who share a commitment to outreach and veteran integration with the community. Read more.
