We provide support for combat wounded service members, aid to military families, scholarships for veterans and dependents. Needs are great and growing daily. Please help!
One of those organizations is the Lehigh Valley Military Affairs Council in Lehigh Valley, PA, who reports that with our help, they were able to award 11 scholarships to deserving veterans & their families this year. At monthly Stand Down events, they go into the areas where homeless veterans gather & live & bring them in to the events & give them food, clothing, medical assistance, & assist them with getting VA benefits & help them find permanent living arrangements. Their homeless programs help homeless veterans become a viable part of society by teaching them computer skills, how to interview for a job, & assist them with transportation to & from job interviews.
Their "Veteran's Reading Brigade" program enlists veterans to read to boys & girls in elementary school, teaching them about the military & veteran communities. The "Healing Waters" program assists wounded heroes with daily issues they face after coming home from deployment. Finally, the "Academics for Veterans Educational Fair" focuses on VA benefits, college scholarships & other community resources for veterans.
