YW Celebrates Our Veterans, AmeriCorps Gives Day of Service

November 8, 2019

November is National Veterans and Military Families Month. On Monday, Nov. 11, 2019, the nation sets aside a day to pay tribute to America’s heroes. 

YWCA Central Alabama celebrates and appreciates our very own Annette Zinnerman (Facilities Services), Andre Coleman (Facilities Services), Dedric Griffin (AmeriCorps), Milton Rawle (Finance), and all veterans and active-duty military who protect our freedoms.

Members of the YW's Building Communities, Bettering Lives AmeriCorps Program honored Veterans, Reserve, Guard and military spouses receiving services from the Birmingham VA Medical Center by presenting them with custom-made Veterans Day cards and goodie bags on Nov. 7. The YWCA AmeriCorps Day of Service for Veterans 2019 project was a tangible thank-you to veterans and those still serving for their commitment to our country.
