BENEFITING: New England Center and Home for Veterans
ORGANIZER: New England Center and Home for Veterans
EVENT DATE: Aug 21, 2016
On Sunday, August 21st Jeremy and I will set out to run one of the most picturesque races in the country, the Falmouth Road Race. We are doing so in support of the New England Center and Home for Veterans- and we need your help.
Most of you know that I have been working for the Center for the last several years, first consulting on their gala and then joining the team full time last July. I am so proud to work for an organization that helps more than a thousand Veterans in need each year. It is a place where brave men and women can go to get the support they sometimes desperately need when coming back from serving in the military.
We all know someone who is a Veteran. Jeremy and I personally have many family members who served; Jeremy's grandfather, my grandfather, our step-father Tom, many uncles, cousins and friends. The reason I personally feel so passionate about the work done at the Center is because of my late Uncle Joel. If he knew there was a place like NECHV available to him 15 years ago then I truly think he would still be with us today.
It is something that is not spoken about much. In the past resources were not available to Veterans when they needed them. We need immediate results for these men and women who risked their lives every day. The Center provides those services and I feel it is our duty to help give back to them what they risked for our freedom. This is their time of need.
No donation is too small. We thank you for considering donating to this incredible cause. To learn more please visit nechv.org
