High School Students Spend Summer Serving Veterans at Miami VA
Date:8/7/2013

MIAMI (PRWEB) August 07, 2013

The Miami VA Healthcare System will be honoring the 75 high school students who spent their summer serving South Florida Veterans Aug. 8 at 9:30 a.m.

The Summer Student program is a longstanding tradition at the Miami VA and this year two of the students went above and beyond, working on their own time and collecting a donation of $1,526 by hosting car washes and fund raising events at local businesses.

This will be the second year in a row the two 15-year-old cousins, Alain Carles and Viviana Giraldez, will be recognized for a generous donation to Veterans here at the Miami VA Healthcare System.

“The Miami VA hospital is truly a special place and we are honored to be, even if only in a small way, part of this great family,” said Alain Carles when presenting the check. “We wanted to fundraise for the brave Veterans of Miami.”

The Miami VA Voluntary Service Summer Student program gives young adults from Broward and Miami-Dade County schools the chance to work alongside doctors, nurses and VA staff to make sure Veterans are comfortable and provided with high-quality healthcare.

Media interested in this event can contact Shane Suzuki at (786) 359-5243 or at shane.suzuki(at)va(dot)gov.
