“Unfortunately there is never enough supply to meet demand, so we have to turn families away, and it’s heartbreaking,” said Miller.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) October 06, 2018
There are more than 2.2 million women veterans in the United States, some of which are single parents, and some are unfortunately struggling to make ends meet and lack the basic necessities that most Americans take for granted, including food.
Women Veterans Interactive, Inc. (WVI) is doing their part and has become a significant resource for these women who have served and sacrificed for their country, especially during the Thanksgiving holiday. Thankfully this year, WVI is getting a substantial boost from B3 Group in their Turkey Drive fundraising efforts.
Starting today, B3 Group will match up to $2,500 for every donation received up to $5,000. "We are incredibly grateful for the support of B3 Group and their efforts to join forces with us as we support women veterans and their children with a Thanksgiving dinner. What B3 is doing is incredible and noble, and I hope more veteran-owned businesses will join this effort to support our “sisters in service” this holiday season", said Ginger Miller, President and CEO of Women Veterans Interactive.
“Servant Leadership is at the very core of the mission at B3 Group; our employees are the embodiment of our mission and we are proud to assist WVI’s efforts to support women veterans in need”, said Dwight Hunt, President and CEO for B3 Group.
Going on its fifth year, the Women Veterans Interactive Turkey Drive has supported hundreds of women veterans and active duty families, and every year the emails and calls continue to pour in. “Unfortunately there is never enough supply to meet demand, so we have to turn families away, and it’s heartbreaking,” said Miller.
Women Veterans Interactive will begin collecting donations today, October 5, 2018, through Veterans Day, November 11, 2018. Visit http://www.womenveteransinteractive.org to donate today.
Turkey Basket distribution sites will include Northern Virginia, and San Antonio, TX.
