R.E.D. Shirt Friday: Remembering Everyone Deployed – The Southern Utah Veterans Home invites community members to participate in their largest R.E.D. Shirt Friday ever (August 14, 2015).
The Southern Utah Veterans Home (SUVH) will host a campus wide R.E.D. Shirt Friday event on August 14, 2015. SUVH staff has participated in many R.E.D. Fridays, and are especially excited for this upcoming Friday. “Our Veteran Resident Council has organized a R.E.D. Shirt Friday to allow residents to support veterans and soldiers from around the world. Supported by President Stan Snow, all of our residents now have R.E.D. Shirts to wear alongside our staff. This collaborative effort is just one of the many reasons the Southern Utah Veterans Home team is so passionate about what we do to help and provide a better quality of life for all veterans.” explained Recreation Director, Vie Van Noy.
The R.E.D. Shirt movement is recognized and celebrated across the nation. R.E.D. Fridays stands for Remember Everyone Deployed. The program was created in 2006 to show support and appreciation for those that serve our country in the armed forces. In just 9 years, the movement has grown to include support from hundreds of organizations, and tens of thousands of individuals. “Our goal is to support our veterans, not just locally, but on a global scale,” said Administrator Jerry Olson. “This Friday we are looking forward to standing together in a show of solidarity, in support of and appreciation for all that our military is doing today, and the dedication that so many veterans have given throughout history.”
“This Friday we would like to invite our community to join us for R.E.D. Shirt Friday. Our staff and residents will all be in red, and really want to make a statement of appreciation by including R.E.D. Shirt Friday community supporters to join us for our official R.E.D. Shirt Friday photo this week.” said Van Noy.
Please join the Southern Utah Veterans Home for this community R.E.D. Shirt Friday Photo event and an opportunity to tour the campus.
