VETS4VETS, West Springfield, MA Chapter
Organized by: betty felton-stephenson
Last week I received a letter from VETS4VETS, asking for monetary donations to help pay the rent on their office space, so they could remain "Open," and continue to help Veterans in need of essential goods and services. As one of their clients I suggested establishing an online fundraising campaign. VETS4VETS is a Non-Profit Org. operated entirely by volunteers. Most of these wonderful people are Disabled American Veterans, their friends and spouses. They do all the work including completing complicated paperwork and acting as liaisons between their clients and many local, state, and federal agencies. VETS4VETS solves and/or directs our Vets facing many disturbing issues to agencies for immediate and long-term assistance. They also help people like me. My husband was a Disabled Vietnam Veteran. He died as his disability case was being decided. The VETS4VETS have reopened my husband's case and we've been working together for three years. They have given me hope, but most importantly , they have helped many veteran's and their families with essential needs.
