Although we are still amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic still, there are sites that are affording our citizens opportunities to be vaccinated. Vaccination Sites are located all over the state of Virginia, if anyone is considering getting vaccinated, please discuss this with your primary care doctor(s), caregivers. Testing sites nearby: Walgreens, Walmart, Neighborhood Walmart’s, CVS, Publix Supermarket, Kroger Pharmacy and a host of other vaccination and testing sites.
Remember the 3 W’s:
WEAR your mask,
WASH your hands,
WATCH your distance.
Within the last two months, the Transition In Place Program (TIP) has said their “See you laters” to a few veterans and also said their “Hellos’” to a few new veterans. Three families of the TIP Program have transitioned into their next phase of life. To those veterans who have recently transitioned, Mr. Canaday, Mr. Elcock, and Mr. Cusick.
Congratulations to you all, job well done, our doors at HandUp are always open for you all!
With welcome arms we would like to extend our open and welcoming arms to all new members of the TIP family. We are more than glad that you all chose to be a part of this marvelous program.
“Transitions aren’t easy, but they’re worth it."
Welcome Ms. D. Thornton and family,
we are more than glad you all are on this journey with us!
