In honor of Veteran’s Day on Nov. 11 and Veterans Awareness Week on Nov. 9-13, Veterans Advocacy Law Organization (VALOR) is sponsoring a number of events at the law school including a Marine Corps cake cutting ceremony and a free clinic for veterans.
To kickoff Veteran’s Awareness Week, VALOR is hosting a Canned Food Drive Competition, which will be held Monday, Nov. 9, through Friday, Nov. 13. Boxes will be set up in the Law Commons. The annual food drive will benefit Veterans Helping Veterans Heal, a transitional housing center for homeless veterans in the Winston-Salem area. There will be boxes set up for each class, along with a box for MSL/LLM students and a box for faculty and staff. All non-perishable food items are welcome.
“In years past, many professors have offered incentives to their students who brought in food for the drive (i.e. cold call passes) so keep an eye out for e-mails about this,” says VALOR Secretary Chris Salemme (JD ’17), 2nd Lieutenant, U.S. Army.
Following are the rest of the week’s scheduled events:
