SSO members create small groups and play their favorites in this informal free concert to Benefit FURNISHVETS, a Chamber of Commerce initiative to assist veterans discharged from the VA Center in Perry Point.
Many Veterans transitioning are in need of help to furnish their first homes after discharge, and now three Harford County non-profits have teamed to fill this need. With the generosity of Harford County residents who are donating gently used furniture, the Harford County Chamber of Commerce (Military Affairs Committee) and the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Susquehanna Chapter have created FURNISHVETS which will pick up and transport needed items with volunteer labor and vehicles. The logistics channel is fragile and sufficient only for the start-up of the program. Transportation funds are needed to support the project through its first year. Therefore the Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra has designated FURNISHVETS as the beneficiary of this year’s Chamber Concert. Monetary donations will be accepted at the concert by the MOAA. Attendees may also schedule pick-ups at the event. Among the most needed items are sofas, chairs and tables. Tax-deductible receipts will be provided.
