You can stand UNITED FOR VETERANS - Help us raise $75,000 to show you care about our defenders!
For generations, America’s veterans have answered our country’s call. With no thought for their own safety or security, they have fought tirelessly so that we may live in freedom.
This holiday season, VFW is asking you to join us in showing our respect for the sacrifices made by every veteran who has served this great nation of ours.
With the waves of new veterans recently home from the Middle East, your support has never meant more than it does right now.
Because even though they may have left battle, it doesn’t mean they can stop fighting.
Today’s veterans face a mountainous VA workload. Unprecedented numbers of new veterans are living with the effects of “invisible wounds” like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Right now, there are over 3.3 million veterans with service-connected disabilities in America. We need your help to protect the rights of every veteran of every war!
Here’s who benefits when you give to VFW:
Severely Injured Veterans — Young veterans in wheelchairs, living with amputations, burns, blindness or other physical injuries, and the thousands of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans who have experienced a traumatic brain injury need to know you care. Many are now haunted by crippling mental illnesses like PTSD and at high risk for suicide.
Families in Crisis — What happens when a young spouse suddenly becomes a full-time caregiver? When a child must now care for a disabled parent? It’s happening every day in military households across the country.
Veterans Seeking Justice — Every veteran deserves the swift resolution of their claims. Waiting for their well-earned entitlements shouldn’t take years! VFW advocates for veterans and helps them through the VA claims process. Our service officers recovered more than $2 billion in benefits for nearly 100,000 veterans last year alone.
Please do what you can to make sure our programs can help struggling veterans of all generations.
Donations made to your fundraising page will support VFW programs that help veterans:
- Fight for the VA benefits they’ve earned
