Three years ago, The Hub on Canal launched the Veterans in Art (VIA) program, enabling wounded warriors and disabled veterans to participate in art and music programs free of charge.
On May 26, 2019 the Hub on Canal will host a music and food night to raise awareness about the benefits of music in veterans recovery and gain financial support for the program. All proceeds from the ticket sales will go directly to the Guitars for Vets organization.
When you include veterans in an art program you can help play an important role in recovery and lifelong wellness. The opportunity to participate in group lessons provides veterans a communal atmosphere to talk and continue to play music with peers who share similar experiences.
Current participating programs are guitars for vets, ukulele classes, painting and harmonica lessons. Since its inception, VIA raised funds to provide 13 scholarships for local wounded warriors and disabled veterans.
You can support this important program by sponsoring their special event or by purchasing tickets to the event.
