Civic and Social Responsibilities are key components in our lives. The Public Issues Community Service Program is designed to actively connect members with effective projects and activities relating to civic and social responsibilities. This program focuses on the following areas.
Citizenship—Educate club members and local communities on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. Encourage members to become involved in the legislation and regulation of issues that affect the world around us.
Military Personnel—Educate club members and become involved in the needs of active military and veterans in our area. Members donate to the Stockings for Soldiers project, sending personalized Holiday greetings to our men and women in uniform. VIA volunteers prepare a homemade meal for the men and women veterans living at Home of the Brave, Milford, on the third Wednesday of each month, September thru May. We support the USO, United Service Organizations, a nonprofit organization that provides programs and services to our active military.
Emergency and Disaster Preparedness—Educate club members and local communities on disaster readiness, recovery and relief. Work with law enforcement agencies and first responders to increase public awareness..
Safety and Crime Prevention—Educate club members and local communities on home, transportation and internet safety. Create safer homes and communities through crime prevention awareness.
