PTSD Awareness Event

June 21 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm

maCares has teamed up with The Fitness Center at Kernersville in Raising PTSD Awareness on Wednesday, June 21st from 9 am – 12 pm and 4 pm – 7 pm.


You’ll be able to meet local veterans and their service dogs in the faith Cares Service Dog Support Program, which helps veterans living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and/or Traumatic Brain Injury by covering the costs associated with their service dogs.

We need the community’s help to create and provide artwork and/or letters expressing their gratitude for a veteran’s service. The collected artwork and letters will be hand delivered by our faith Cares veterans and their service dogs to hospitalized servicemen and women at the Veterans Home in North Carolina. Download pages to color of our faith Cares service dogs at http://www.macares.org/kids-corner. 

Those who are unable to attend the event can still participate by sending a drawing and/or a letter of thanks for a veteran. Please email your artwork and/or letter to weCare@maCares.org. Artwork and letters can also be mailed to 1302 Pleasant Ridge Rd. Greensboro, NC 27409 Attn: maCares – 2017 Honoring Veterans. The delivery deadline is June 21st. 

Thank you for your support!
