OHIO Campus Orgs
Team Member: Ohio University Veterans For Local Children
EVENT DATE Apr 22, 2017
The Combat Veterans Club offers a friendly environment of diverse and dynamic individuals who share many of the same struggles, excitement, and pride of returning to formal education for professional and personal development after completing our country’s call to service overseas. The transition from the combat environment and everyday structure of military service to the new college life requires determination, dedication, perseverance, and friendly familiar support from those with similar interests and background experience. We provide support to Veterans and Veterans of Combat in the form of social guidance through the educational system. We also promote awareness of Veterans’ needs to Ohio University and the surrounding community. We cultivate awareness of Veterans’ contributions to the workforce and community through continued education and volunteer efforts.
Our FUNDRAISING EFFORTS is to help the local children at the Plains Elementary School. There are local children who attend the school whose families cannot afford groceries, clothes, and school supplies. The COMBAT VETERANS CLUB is committed to helping our community, specifically the local children at this event. Our organization wants to being awareness to the public that our local children help.
