VCC’s first Celebration of the Military/Veteran Caregiver event, the Valentine’s Wellness Luncheon, was held on Friday, February 15th and was a great success! Because of donations from organizations like the Phoenix Metro Chamber of Commerce and Phoenix Metro Chamber Foundation, caregivers experienced much-needed respite at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA).
Tempe Mayor, Mark Mitchell, kicked off the event with a welcome and a heartfelt story about his own caregiver journey. Caregiver participants enjoyed an afternoon of good food, a special guest speaker, massages, aromatherapy, flowers and gifts. What a wonderful way to celebrate National Caregiver’s Day!
