Let's Celebrate Our Graduates!

Douglass High School is excited to celebrate the graduation of its 2020 seniors, with the help of any VU employee who wishes to volunteer to ‘adopt’ a senior!

Douglass High School and The Flourish Initiative are coordinating the Adopt-a-Senior project, so that each senior can receive words of encouragement and small gifts from a VU employee. We’re calling these ‘senior care packages’ and are asking that each volunteer spends no more than $50 on their adopted senior’s package.

How to Participate:

Each senior has created a bio online to help you create a personalized care package for them. You may review their bios and choose ONE senior to adopt below

Once you’ve made your selection, email angela.sheffer@veteransunited.com with the student’s name that you wish to adopt. We’ll reply to confirm your adoptee and to make arrangements to pick-up your package.
