General Information

In 1981, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 20 was founded by 50 Vietnam Veterans looking to make a difference in the Rochester area. The following year, the VVA Chapter 20 Thrift Store was founded.

The innovations have just continued. In 1985, the vehicle donation program was formed and their long standing commitment to Monroe County Special Olympics was also established.

As a past recipient of the Harris Award from the Veterans Outreach Center for Outstanding Commitment and Dedication. This chapter continues to not only help but provide  funds to veterans and community service groups alike in our community, day after day, every year since it's inception.
