Partners & Sponsorships
Help Heal Veterans (HEAL VETS) partners with many organizations to distribute therapeutic craft kits to veterans across the U.S. We have also sponsored many therapeutic programs and activities for veterans over the years.
Operation Shoebox is a nonprofit organization that sends care packages to servicemen and women around the world. Packages include food, drinks, dental supplies, shampoo and hair care products, games, music, writing paper and many other comfort items.
Founded in 2003, Operation Shoebox has shipped more than 1,000,000 care packages to active duty personnel, in war zones, on bases and anywhere U.S. troops are located.
Now, in partnering with HEAL VETS, these care packages also include craft kits. Thousands have been donated to the organization’s Florida locations for package preparation, which is done by local volunteers. By including these craft kits, troops can keep their hands busy and minds alert during non-duty hours. HEAL VETS is honored to be part of this popular initiative.
Soldier’s Wish is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to grant the wishes of military servicemen and women, U.S. veterans and their families. Soldier’s Wish grants wishes as a way to honor these special individuals for their bravery and sacrifice for our country.
The primary purpose of Soldier’s Wish is to provide a service to those who were willing to give their lives for our country. This is the mission of HEAL VETS as well.
Because of the HEAL VETS partnership with Soldier’s Wish, a special veteran, military serviceman or woman, or their families will have their wishes granted at all HEAL VETS Veterans Concert Series events.
Through the generosity of the American public and businesses, Soldier’s Wish will be able to fulfill these heroes’ unmet needs, or missed opportunities that arose while defending our country.
HEAL VETS is a proud Commemorative Partner of the Vietnam War Commemoration, a program recognizing America’s Vietnam veterans and their families. The Commemoration recognizes the half-century anniversary of the Vietnam War by thanking Vietnam veterans and their families all across America. The Commemorative Partner Program promotes memorable events and activities that express the contributions of our nation’s veterans who served in Vietnam, and recognize the losses suffered by many during the Vietnam War years.
HEAL VETS saluted Vietnam veterans during the 2014-2015 season of the Veterans Concert Series. The concerts reflected the HEAL VETS mission to demonstrate support and respect to active duty military personnel, veterans, and their Department of Defense Certificate families. The objectives of the Vietnam War Commemoration are to thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War; to highlight the service of the Armed Forces during the Vietnam War; to pay tribute to the contributions made on the home front by the people of the United States during the Vietnam War; to highlight advances in technology, science and medicine related to military research conducted during the Vietnam War; and to identify the contributions and sacrifices made by United States allies during the Vietnam War years.
The Helen Arts and Heritage Center is a non-profit art gallery and art educational facility, located in the far northeast mountain region of Georgia. The Center serves local artists and others through art educational programs as well as annual gallery exhibits and competitions.
With support from HEAL VETS, the Center will begin a new program to help meet the needs of veterans through art. This new partnership enables us to join with artistic professionals to provide art education and instruction to veterans, and showcase their talents.
The various curriculums include art-based activities, HEAL VETS-furnished craft projects, pottery, painting and outdoor activities. The program is free of charge to veterans. The Center is the only non-profit cultural arts organization in the country providing this type of service to military veterans.
