Military Appreciation Luncheon

Tickets now being sold for the NAACP San Diego Armed Services & Veterans Affairs Committee’s Military Appreciation Luncheon.  Come show our service members that you honor them for the sacrifices they make and the difficult and dangerous work they do to keep us all safe!

You may purchase individual tickets, or sponsor an entire table for your friends and loved ones; or sponsor a table and let us fill it with deserving members of our Nation’s Armed Forces!

10 November is the Marine Corp birthday.  As you know, our Military Appreciation Luncheon was scheduled for 10 November 2018.  Because many of the active duty military and veterans that we wanted to honor will be attending the various Marine Corp Balls, we are postponing our Military Appreciation Luncheon to 18 May 2019.  Those of you who have purchased tickets should rest assured that your reservation for the luncheon is secure.

Sock Drive for Veterans Village

by NAACP San Diego Armed Services & Veteran’s Affairs Chairperson Sherry Strothers

Our Fun Walk & Sock Drive was a huge success!!! Thanks to all the wonderful people that came out in the scorching heat to donate socks and underwear for the homeless veterans of Veterans Village of San Diego (VVSD)! Most importantly I want to thank my fellow brothers and sisters of the San Diego NAACP and the AMAZING brothers and sisters of the San Diego Veterans for Peace! Your support is greatly appreciated and let’s keep working together for positive change. 🤗
