May 5, 2020
#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity taking place today as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
We have chosen to support the below organizations either ran by or supporting our veterans.
Foundation for Women Warriors – providing critical relief to women veterans through their Emergency Assistance Fund.
Backpacks For Life – is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that serves the homeless and at-risk veteran community by regularly distributing backpacks to homeless veterans filled with critical daily & long term essentials.
