Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 29, 2012
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (http://www.dvnf.org), a non-profit veterans service organization that focuses on helping men and women who serve and return home wounded or sick after defending our safety and our freedom, has successfully raised and distributed almost $3.5 million in help and support for veterans services organizations and individual veterans around the country thus far in 2012. The total grants and deliveries have gone to many groups whose mission is similar to DVNF- to help disabled and homeless veterans get the support they deserve after serving our country and sacrificing so much.
DVNF deliveries year to date in 2012 have included truckloads of food, water and personal care products to help veterans at several Stand Down events and at care centers. In March, DVNF sent more than $60,000 worth of aid to the American Legion in Salem, Indiana to help veterans affected by deadly tornados. DVNF grants helped combat-wounded veterans receive sports and recreational therapy at Honoring Our Veterans near Jackson Hole, WY. Another Grant given by DVNF went to help veterans receive more adult care services in Prescott, AZ. Homeward Vets in Southampton, MA helped DVNF distribute an approximate $115,000 donation in hotel furniture and equipment to homeless veterans seeking apartments with furnishings.
“We are so excited to be succeeding in our ambitious annual goal of distributing close to $7 million in aid and support to so many veterans and groups that help serve veterans,” said Raegan Rivers, Chief Administrative Officer of DVNF. “We have much work to do, but it is our founding mission to help the men and women who gave so much to serve America and return home often needing help that is not there. We know they deserve our help and we are honored to be able to reach so many veterans through our work and mission.”
