Thank you to all who gave to our Mason County “Sponsor a Veteran” Program in 2016
We had great success at our 1st annual Mason County Veteran “Stand Down” / Resource Event. We were able to serve over 125 Veterans. This includes more than 20 homeless Veterans, many poverty-stricken Veterans and many Veterans looking for help and information. We were able to provide breakfast and lunch, as well as haircuts, toiletries, clothing and survival gear . We also had employment, legal and housing information, as well as the VA Mobile Medical Unit.
We raised almost $3,000 between kit sponsors and smaller donations.
A special thanks to the 40 et 8, La Femmes, and Sons of American Legion for providing, cooking and serving breakfast & lunch for the Stand Down event! Also, to all of the volunteers and donors that helped to make this event a success.
How can you help our local Veterans in need?
The Mason County Veterans Advisory Board has teamed up with local VFW Post 1694 to accept tax-deductible donations for our local MASON COUNTY Veterans in need. This will be an “'on-going-fund" that will help with resources and events for our local Homeless and Poverty-stricken Veterans. This includes supplying a " survival kit" for our homeless Veterans. The kit will include a rucksack, blanket/sleeping bag, food, toiletries, and some clothing. We will always have a kit on hand for immediate needs and will supply enough for all homeless MC Veterans that attend our stand down. Also, this fund will help with emergency needs throughout the year ... An example of this need would be wheelchair ramp, roof repair, etc.
We would be happy to accept any donation, as it all adds up quickly. $150 is approximate amount needed to cover a complete kit/ sponsor a veteran. Those who sponsor this amount are acknowledged sponsors.
