To showcase the Silverado during Summer of Chevy, we chose to go a different route in our filming. Earlier this year, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet met Bill O’Brien and a few other board members of Veteran Owned Veteran Grown, a local non-profit that aids veterans by giving a renewed sense of purpose and potential entrepreneurship through agricultural endeavors. The ultimate goal is to help veterans live a full, sustainable life and build a stronger community together.
“VOVG exists for several reasons. The biggest one is to connect veterans and their families socially so they don’t feel like they are alone in this journey. We focus strongly on agriculture in its many forms to help veterans become sustainable,” according to the Veteran Owned Veteran Grown website. “Farming is hard work with long hours but, it also provides a peace and serenity that no pill the VA will give you can. Everything from raising chickens to craft work. We will do whatever we can to make you sustainable.”
Please enjoy the short feature that we produced on site at Veteran Owned Veteran Grown, starring some of their members with a little help from Team RWB Wilmington.
It was a beautiful day of shooting at Veteran Owned Veteran Grown Inc, headquartered in Burgaw, NC.
