Veterans who are rebuilding their lives and re-establishing their lives can often use furniture, appliances, and other household furnishings that are in good condition.  Many of our veterans are also seeking employment and need gently worn proper attire.  You can email our Resources Coordinator to determine if any of our veterans is looking for apparel in your size.  Because CVAF is a non-profit agency, all of your donations are tax deductible.

If you are a company with overstocks that could be of use to our veterans, please contact our Resources Coordinator to help you coordinate your donation.
