We would like to thank you very much for your ongoing support for our organization. In a society where everyone is tightening their spending, we applaud you for thinking of others who are truly in need of help. To date, we've raised close to $40,000 to benefit military heroes who have been harmed physically and/or financially due to serving in the U.S. military.
We're excited to announce that we've already helped numerous families around the country with these funds and 100% of the funds we received has been paid out to these military families. This money has helped service members and their families avoid further economic harm due to their circumstances. It has given them a second chance to get back on their feet financially. And it has let them know their service to their country is not forgotten.
We continue to receive applications from service members. They are struggling to keep their homes out of foreclosure, pay a basic utility bill and manage their budgets in a time of unemployment, heavy medical bills and transitioning from military to civilian life. To continue the impact of this program, we are asking you and your co-workers to continue to contribute through gift cards and other donations. On behalf of the service members who have received a grant, we appreciate and thank you for all you do. Without your help, none of this is possible!
Thank you for your continued support.
