As we are ALL aware, the last 72 hours have been full of changes.

Due to this, the VSF's 29th Annual International Food Festival or IFF will be postponed with a new date to be determined.

IFF is the primary fundraising event for the Fort Drum Volunteer Support Fund (VSF) with financial support repercussions that extend deeply into our Fort Drum Volunteer Organizations, Programs, and Community. Our event routinely has a total headcount of over 500 people that come in and out throughout the course of the night and includes people from the throughout the Fort Drum and North Country communities.

We absolutely will be doing our best to reschedule this annual event as soon as we can reasonably and safely do so. We as a Volunteer board will continue to actively work on developing a plan of action for this important event during this time of uncertainty.

Once things have stabilized and we have been able to firm up all details, we will release further information and details to include the refund process for ticketholders no longer capable of attending the event.

We are so grateful for the support, understanding, and patience of our community as we all navigate the fluidity of the changes currently taking place.

Questions may be directed to [email protected].

Sincerely--

Jennifer Pittard
VSF President

Our Story

The Volunteer Support Fund (VSF) is a private non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the many organizations on Fort Drum by assisting in the childcare costs of their volunteers. These organizations would not be able to function without the tireless efforts of their volunteers and many of those volunteers could not donate their time so generously without the VSF’s assistance with childcare costs. With your help we will be able to continue to support the following organizations on Fort Drum: USO, North Country Spouses Club, Thrift Shop, American Red Cross, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Fort Drum Historical Collection, Off the Beatin' Path Gift Shop and many others.
