Hope VALOR, a program of Hope Healthcare, was awarded a $3,000 grant from the Cape Royal Community Foundation.

Hope’s volunteer Honor Guard, a group of U.S. veterans and supporters, conduct special presentations for Hope’s veterans as part of the VALOR program. With family and friends in attendance, veterans are honored with a certificate of appreciation, lapel pin, stuffed bear and a formal military salute.

Staff also collaborate with the Veterans Administration to help make arrangements for replacement medals, military funeral honors, burials in a VA national cemetery, and donations of artifacts to historical societies and museums.

VALOR was among seven nonprofit organizations recognized with 2017 grants from the CRCF.
