BENEFITING: FINAL SALUTE
Baltimore Resident is Semifinalist for Title of Ms. Veteran America 2016
I am officially running for the title of Ms. Veteran America, 2016. I am excited for the competition, and especially, to implement a nationwide outreach program to help homeless Veteran Women with Final Salute Inc. As you may know, I served in the U.S. Air Force for 12 years and am a single mother to my beautiful daughter, Naomi Rose. I am very concerned about the homeless problem that is facing Women Veterans.
Women Veterans are currently the fastest growing homeless population in America. As of 2016, there are over 55,000+ homeless women veterans in the United States. Additionally, studies show many homeless veteran women have suffered a domestic violence.
As part of my outreach campaign to help Women Veterans, I am raising money for Final Salute Inc. (http://www.finalsaluteinc.org/). Final Salute Inc. offers housing & employment programs for single women veterans, helps bring awareness, and offers solutions to women veterans.
Please donate to this important cause on my Crowdrise website: www.crowdrise.com/mva2016donnad/fundraiser/donnadesrosiers
My goal is to raise a minimum of $5,000 for Final Salute Inc. When you donate, I will update you on the progress of my outreach, and of course, keep you informed of my Ms. Veteran America, 2016 status
Thank you so much for your support!
