Tampa Bay Residents Help ServiceSource Florida Honor Veterans

ServiceSource Florida is a nonprofit headquartered in Clearwater, FL fostering community integration for people with disabilities, providing programs to help them find employment and increase self-sufficiency. ServiceSource Florida recently welcomed eight employees from Vogue International to the Clearwater office.

The team volunteered their time to help with the finishing touches to the landscaping renovation in the Veterans Tribute Garden, a project at ServiceSource Florida’s Warrior Bridge program, created to honor the sacrifice of veterans. The Warrior Bridge program assists veterans with disabilities in employment readiness, job development, job placement, job coaching, and veteran resource navigation.

Headquartered in Tampa Bay, Vogue International began its volunteer relationship with ServiceSource Florida in December 2019. The team also helped build shelving for the Warrior Bridge Veterans Mall and organize its contents. The Veterans Mall is a storeroom of household necessities and interview clothing free for veterans transitioning from homelessness to new housing.

“Our programs help so many people get back on their feet,” Executive Director Matt Motko said. “I am grateful that we have so many volunteers who recognize the importance of our mission and want to help.”

The Veterans Tribute Garden pavilion in Clearwater is now complete thanks to the Vogue International volunteers, along with donations and volunteers from GE Aviation and Home Depot, Class-A general contractor Joe Mobley, architects Bruce Houghton and Jim Melhtretter, professional engineer Jon Gotwald, landscape contractor Peter Drouin, roofing contractor Bill Duchess, and Pinnacle Services volunteers. By facilitating programs for veterans and others with disabilities while providing volunteer opportunities to Tampa Bay residents, ServiceSource Florida unites and inspires citizens to give back to the community.
