Charles Wright & Family Donate Wheelchair Accessible Van to VSG. The 2005 Kia Sedona was donated by Charles Wright & Family, in honor of his wife Tabiatha, who passed on February 11th, 2019. Mr. Wright was very adamant in his efforts to "pay it forward", since the van was originally donated to his family. Mr. Wright and his family decided to donate the van to VSG after attempting to give directly to another family in need. Mr. Wright was directed to VSG by one of VSG's neighbors business owners, Michele & Roger White of Holy Smokes BBQ
VSG donated the 2005 Kia Sedona to Navy Veteran Johnnie Brown (Vietnam Vet) who served from Sep 63 to Sep 69. Mr. Brown and his wife Sandra (son David) were all very grateful to VSG for the donation!

Thank you Gold Wing Road Riders (GWRRA) Chapter A for all your donations and coming in this weekend for our Clothes Closet meeting volunteering and to help us box up clothing for a veteran in need this weekend!
Team VSG would like to say THANK YOU to "A Heart To Serve Outreach Foundation"! Ronnie Marshall Jr. and his family donated several food items to our Food Pantry.
Team VSG attended the 12th Annual Veterans Appreciation Breakfast this week hosted by Mayor Copeland and the McDonough City Council at the Heritage Senior Center. At the end of the event, Mayor Copeland allowed Bob Van Dunk, CEO VSG & staff to make a presentation of two brand new M-1 Grand Parade Rifles to the Henry Co High School JROTC Color Guard. These cadets did an awesome job at both breakfast Mon & Thu and VSG wanted to show its appreciation to these fine young men & women! Thanks also to MAJ Houchins and your leadership team for the fine job you're doing with these cadets! HOOAH (Its an Army thing)!
Thank you Jerry Hesselink of Henry for Music for your donation of the 2 guitars & 2 wall mounts (and a keyboard on the way)! Jerry donated these instruments for any vet wanting to use them for music therapy. He has also made arrangements to periodically have the guitars tuned up when necessary and free lessons when available. Thanks for your support Jerry!
Ms Phyllis Brumfield stopped by VSG on May 15, 2019 to share with us some of the clothing she and her daughter Angela (Air Force Vet) have collected for Veterans. (see Angela's youtube story with Senator Isakson below).
After getting Angela's benefits reinstated, the mother and daughter team wanted to do something to give back to veterans, so they started a clothing drive for veterans. Seeking a veteran organization to donate the clothing to, Senator Isakson recommended VSG. Thank you Senator Isakson for your support and thank you Phyllis & Angela for your service and support for our veterans!
Ms Brumfield now volunteers as the Clothes Closet Coordinator at VSG!
