BENEFITING: WEST MICHIGAN VETERANS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
EVENT DATE: May 11, 2013
Jeff will be running his first 5K this year, where Angela will likely leave him in the dust!!! In order to truly savor this moment, we thought it might be good to raise a little money along the way.
The West Michigan Veterans Assistance Program is available to ALL Veterans that have served 180 days and have an honorable or medical discharge. The program offers various services including gas and food cards, assistance with housing and utilities, clothing, on-site pantry, funds for prescriptions, co-pays, dental care, eye exams and reading glasses. Veterans are also assisted with bedding, dishes, pots and pans, living and dining room furniture and cleaning supplies.
Jeff has referred many homeless Veterans to the WMVA program for assistance with rental application fees and security deposits. The group has routinely come through in a pinch and assisted in transitioning an American Veteran from homelessness to being housed.
Any amount of financial assistance is appreciated. Thanks so much!!
