"Winning the Pepsi Refresh project would help military heroes pay for basic services – such as housing assistance or utility bills – while they seek employment in this difficult economy."
Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) December 01, 2011
The Mercy for Me charity has been invited to participate in the Pepsi Refresh Project, a 31 day campaign for online votes to help America’s military veterans. Mercy for Me is asking supporters to visit its Pepsi Refresh Project page at http://www.RefreshEverything.com/MercyForVets and vote for its project every day in December. The project with the most votes at the end of the month wins a $50,000 grant from Pepsi.
Mercy for Me will use the $50,000 to provide tax-free financial grants to military veterans facing housing challenges and financial hardship. Mercy for Me has already distributed such grants to Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans living in Maryland, Missouri, California, and elsewhere.
“We are proud to partner with Pepsi on our plan to deliver sorely-needed financial assistance to America’s war veterans,” said Jason Bryan, Mercy for Me’s Director of Program Outreach. “Winning the Pepsi Refresh project would help military heroes pay for basic services – such as housing assistance or utility bills – while they seek employment in this difficult economy. We encourage our supporters to vote for our project at the page linked here.”
