Veteran's Day 2019

November 11, 2019

Haverhill, MA

VNOC partnered with our neighbors at The Grill Next Door and The One Stop Sub Shop and Variety in Haverhill, MA to do a fundraising raffle on Monday for Veteran's Day. Over $1,000 was raised from ticket sales for VNOC to put towards programs and services ending homelessness for Our Nation's Veteran's. Both businesses were also gracious enough to donate 5% of their total sales for the day.

Run for the Troops 5K

April 22, 2018

This year's Run for the Troops was a giant success! The race was Sunday April 22nd and raised about $60,000 and almost 4,000 runners attended. The race went really well and was a lot of fun. This year was the first year for dogs to register and have their own route to walk with their owners! Along with the Veterans Northeast Outreach Center, the other beneficiaries for the event included Delta Dogs, Ironstone Farms, Brides Across America, and Homes for our Troops. All proceeds from the event will go back to these Veteran organizations. We're looking forward to next year!
