Christmas Assistance

Our third annual Christmas Fund will sponsor fifteen veteran families with up to $1,000 each in Christmas funds assistance and a $150 grocery gift card. This is an increase in assistance from our first year where we were able to assist six families.  Each family will be contacted directly to discuss where they would like a $1000 gift card to purchase gifts for their family. They will also be contacted to discuss where they would like a $150 grocery gift card. These gift cards will be mailed or emailed to recipients.
