Azalea Charities donates $5000 to the
Veteran Artists Program
As part of its support of Aid for Wounded Warriors, Azalea Charities recently presented a $5,000 check to the Veteran Artist Program (VAP) to provide workshops and programs that unite the military communities with veteran and civilian artists, arts organizations, schools, national cultural institutions, philanthropic foundations and military hospitals to raise awareness of the significance of the arts in the healing process.
VAP takes artists, who are also veterans, and propels their works and careers into the mainstream creative arts community through networking, mentorship, collaboration with professional artists, and original productions. VAP is based in the Baltimore-Washington area and looking forward to connecting with other like-minded organizations and expanding the network of veteran artists throughout the country.
