What is Project Uplift?

Volunteers in Project Uplift help to uplift the spirits of veterans, wounded heroes, and service members overseas. Volunteers do this through participating in activities such as visiting veterans at the Mervyn Sharp Bennion Veterans Home, writing uplifting letters, and participating in other activities that assist our country's armed forces. Veterans home visits are weekly, and approximately 2-3 larger program events will be held each semester.

How do I get involved?

To get involved, contact the program directors by phone or by email at .
