VA Summer of Service and CCVAC- On June 29, CCVAC went to the Portland VA Medical Center for the #VASummerOfService event. We had a great time learning about so many organizations who love helping Veterans. Thanks to the many people who stopped by our table to share their interest in Veterans. CCVAC was the “top table” of the event….we brought tops for visitors to play with or take along.  KOIN.COM did this story about the day. See http://www.va.gov/vasummerofservice/ for details about the VA’s national effort for Summer 2015.
