NVA Cares Is Here to Help

When life takes an unexpected turn as a result of a natural disaster (hurricane, wildfire, flood, etc.), NVA Cares is here to help.

The program provides short-term, immediate financial relief to our NVA Community when they’re in need.

In 2021, the NVA Cares Foundation provided cash grants (up to $500) to 42 team members whose lives were turned upside down during natural disasters in Texas, Arizona, Louisiana, New York, and Colorado.

One of them included Reena Dortch (pictured above), an assistant manager at Animal Kind Veterinary Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. She was forced to move out of her Queens, NY, home last September when her basement apartment flooded during Hurricane Ida.

“The grant was a huge help because I had to move suddenly and didn’t have much funds set aside,” Reena said.

NVA Cares has already sprung into action in 2022 with four donations helping those affected by the Colorado wildfires and another four related to the Maryland wildfires.

You can learn more about the NVA Cares efforts by watching the below video featuring 2021 grant recipients. (It’s also on YouTube here.)
