Building a stronger Tampa Bay through social outreach and neighborhood events.

We integrate veterans into local community events and projects to encourage a sense of community and inspire through actions.

By building a strong community through social outreach we change some of the negative stigmas surrounding Post 9/11 veterans.  

Combining our team culture with localized programs that give back we positively impact our team members and entire communities. Our Featured Programs and Signature Social Events strengthen our team while building a stronger Tampa Bay!

Post 9/11 Veterans focuses on providing a platform, a starting point, and a place of belonging where Tampa Veterans find education and camaraderie while working alongside fellow Veterans in our community building projects.  
We invite you to browse our past events and annual projects that we love to support! 

Lastly, if you would like to get involved, we'd love you to join us at any of our future events - we have fun!  Click here to explore ways you can get involved today.

Featured Programs

Back to School Program Supporting

Support our back to school drives

Twice a year our team hosts a back to school drive to raise much needed school supplies for underserved school students in Tampa. 

Why we support Academy Prep

Academy Prep is transforming lives in the community, one child at a time.
The school is dedicated to educating economically-disadvantaged students by providing an academically challenging, enriching and structured environment followed by eight years of support and guidance through high school and college.

Most Academy Prep graduates enter high school at least two years ahead of grade level in reading and math. Their 5th-8th grade students maintain over a 96% attendance rate, one of the top five attendance rates for any middle school in the Tampa Bay area.

Annual Christmas Toy Drive

Serving Tampa Bay Veteran Families in Need

100% of the toys and donations made go towards providing a Merry Christmas for local veterans and their families!

The thought that some kids in Tampa Bay might wake up without a single present to open on Christmas morning is not something we at Post 9/11 Veterans are ok with.

The fact that some of these kids may even be those of veterans who have fallen on hard times is something we are unwilling to accept. Since this program started we've assisted nearly 50 Tampa Bay Veteran families.

Everyone says they want to make a difference, here is your chance!

Check back for updates on when we launch our 2020 Toy Drive.
