Connecting Donors & Veterans

Don’t just make a difference – make a friend.

Our nation’s veterans humbly appreciate HEAL VETS' arts and crafts, made possible by our generous donors. When you make a donation, you may even hear back from the veterans whose lives you improve.

We encourage our donors to return the correspondence. Over the years, countless veterans and donors have become pen-pals; many resulting in lifelong friendships. 

To form a pen-pal relationship with a veteran contact HealVets for a list of veterans who would like a pen-pal.

Pen-Pal relationships often form when a donor receives a thank-you postcard from a veteran who was given a therapeutic arts & crafts kit in their name. HEAL VETS has been told time and again how appreciative both donors and veterans are for giving them this wonderfully personalized line of communication.
