We're so grateful they were able to help before the first freeze hits Chicago. We can't wait to see them bloom next year and work with this group of young men again! #TheVOAWay

A special thank you to the Chicago Bears Outreach team for inviting female Veterans on our team to their Women in Service event this past week. The dinner honored and thanked female Veterans for their sacrifice and dedication to our country. In addition they hosted a panel, led by reporter Lauren Screeden, talking about what it means to be a female Veteran and women in leadership. Our very own Akya, center of photo, participated in the panel! We're so grateful for the outreach team and their support of our work! #TheVOAWay
