2019 Flag Day Campaign (26th Annual)


Veterans Outreach Center’s annual Flag Day campaign, sponsored by A&J Pharmacy, celebrates the Red, White, and Blue as the symbol of our country. On Flag Day (June 14th), we commemorate the Congressional adoption of the Stars and Stripes as the United States’ official flag on June 14, 1777. 

To share in the pride of Old Glory, volunteers distribute over 30,000 flags and information on VOC’s services and accept donations to support the programs and services that Veterans Outreach Center provides to veterans, active service members, and their families free of charge. 

Flags will be distributed starting Thursday, June 13 and run through Sunday June 16. You can see a list of Flag Day locations here.

If you can't make it to a location, you can donate right here.


We need VOLUNTEERS!

Volunteer shifts are four hours in length and are great for groups, families, and students! We are always looking for more help.
