Create a Legacy of Care
Community VNA was founded in 1911 by community-minded volunteers who donated their philanthropic and leadership support to bring the first services of trained, professional nurses to people in need in Attleboro. That enduring legacy of philanthropy is still evident today in all the programs of care provided by Community VNA.
No matter what you choose to give, remember that your gift will help us provide high quality care including home healthcare, hospice and palliative care, adult day health care, and community health & wellness programs. With your gift, you help us improve health, well-being and quality of life for the people of our southern Massachusetts region.

Reasons to Give
Held each April, Spring Break is Community VNA's signature fundraising event and offers an opportunity for attendees to recharge, renew and reconnect after what can often be a long New England winter.
The afternoon features a delicious brunch, raffles, auction, and entertainment.
Each year, we highlight one of our primary service areas or programs (our Free Care Fund and Alzheimer's Assistance Program are just a couple of recent examples), with proceeds from the event benefiting out patients and families in the communities we serve.

5K Run/Walk to Remember

After the race, massage/stretching therapists as well as refreshments, and vendor tables offer participants an opportunity to unwind.
