State Community Service Project

Operation Valor Voices

Showing Appreciation, Basket by Basket / Letter by Letter.

Operation Valor Voices is a community service initiative orchestrated by SkillsUSA California. Our mission is to rally support for veterans and their families in various cities across the state, working hand in hand with the California Veteran Affairs (VA) and the USO. This project entails crafting thoughtful gift baskets and heartfelt letters to express gratitude for the dedication and service of our veterans. The baskets are curated with books, board games, snacks, and comfort essentials. Join us in eliminating the isolation gap and offering veterans resources to promote healing and joy.

Statewide Goal

Our community service goal is to assemble and deliver 1000 baskets and letters to veterans and their families in California through 'Operation Valor Voices' to express appreciation and support for their service and sacrifices.
