On Thursday, May 24th, 2018, The Amistad for Veterans Program in collaboration with the VISTA team and additional staff hosted a Memorial Salute to Veterans Day event for our service members to celebrate their time of service.

The VISTA team received in-kind donations and monetary considerations from sponsors such as Little Caesars who donated 15 pizzas, Krispy Crème who donated 3 dozen donuts, Chuy’s restaurant who donated a $45 dollars gift card, and Whataburger who donated 100 gift cards, 100 cozies, 5 gift bags, and a $500 community grant to assist in creating a successful event.

The Non-Commissioned Officers (NCO) Wives Club at Fort Bliss, donated over $240 dollars to purchase non-perishable food from El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank. Seventy-two bags of non-perishable food were donated to veterans in need.

The VISTA team was fortunate to receive door prizes and gifts, all veterans and family members who attended the event were gifted prizes and give-a-ways. In all, the event was a great success and the VISTA team could personally thank or veterans for their service and reward them with free food, beverage, and prizes. As John F. Kennedy rightly stated, “Word to the Nation: Guard zealously your right to serve in the Armed Forces, for without them, there will be no other rights to guard."

The Project Amistad VISTA team met with other VISTA’s around the EL Paso Community. We held a Community Vista Networking Meeting, and we spoke about how we can assist each other with our various community programs, we also discussed our VAD’S, and finally, we created a community forum among VISTA’s to enhance our community outreach, by working together to strengthen our core mission of creating productive capacity building in our community. We have agreed to continue our VISTA Networking Meeting on a quarterly basis to touch base with each other throughout the year. #AmericorpsVISTA #GettingThingsDone

The Suicide Prevention Candlelight Vigil at NAMI El Paso was an amazing experience and dais from which we go about the work of advocacy in our community. Rep. Joe Moody gave and incredibly powerful speech on the importance of the work we do, and hearing from the families of victims brought voice to the importance of making this issue a prominent part of our discussion. If you or a loved one is battling with thoughts of suicide reach out and call 1-800-273-8255.
