Nestle USA VA Medical Center Contribution, Giving Back to the Veteran

Image - Nestle USA / VCS Contribution Event

Veterans Canteen Service vendor, Nestle USA, held their 3rd annual contribution event last week. The James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital in Tampa, FL was selected by Nestle USA as a recipient of their annual community service project and $5,000 donation. More than 50 volunteers from Nestle USA spent the afternoon of Jan. 31, at the hospital painting, planting flowers and creating a water fountain in the outside courtyard of the Spinal Cord Injury Center. Once the project was completed, a reception was sponsored by Veterans Canteen Service.

Nestlé’s Military Sales Director, Jeff Lozito presented a check in the amount of $5000 for the updates that were made to the medical center. Accepting the check was Medical Center Director, Ms. Kathleen Fogarty and Veterans Canteen Service Director, Ms. Marilyn Iverson. “I was so appreciative that Nestle USA chose the James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital as recipient of their community service project and generous donation to the hospital” said Ms. Fogarty. “And a special thanks to our Veteran Canteen Service for their support and making this a wonderful event with onsite staff, regional manager and Ms. Iverson”.

Nestle has made contributions to two other medical centers, San Francisco, CA in 2009 and Charleston, SC in 2010. The company would like to continue to provide donations for improvements with various VA Medical Centers across the United States. Because of Nestlé’s partnership with VCS, they are becoming more involved with giving back to our Veterans. Overall, the event in Tampa was very successful. Veterans, their families and VA employees were very excited to see the updated courtyard for everyone to enjoy.
