What's Good?


Well we haven't sent a newsletter all year! *ba-dum-bum-CHING* We may or may not have been waiting 365 days for that joke. The holidays were interesting in the Carolinas with weather that confused even the ants in the ground and rolling blackouts that affected thousands of residents. We hope your holidays were great despite all.

Here is to having an amazing year for us all!

VBH Spotlight

Welcome Don Timmons!

Over the holidays, we welcomed new teammates to help us to further the mission of helping Veterans thrive. One of them is Mr. Don Timmons; a true legend in the Central and Western areas of NC and a champion of all Veterans.

Don is an Army Veteran and served in Vietnam and Cambodia from 1969-1970. After retiring from business in 2008, Don set his sights on community work having volunteered as well as being staff and a board member for popular non-profits such as the Special Olympics, Big Brothers-Big Sisters and Make-A-Wish Foundation.

If you've been a friend of ours for a while, you'll recognize his name from his Veteran Coffee's he organized for 9 years while working with Trellis Supportive Care as their Community Partnership and Veterans Support Coordinator.

We are honored to have Don onboard as the Community Engagement Manager in the Triad.
