We accept donations to our Military Family Assistance fund that aids veterans and their families in times of need. We know that not everyone can give a monetary donation, but there are a number of charities and organizations that accept donations of everything from toiletries to used cars.
Do you have time to give to your state’s veterans? Volunteer with a Veteran Service Organization, spend time with elder vets, help keep veteran cemeteries and memorials clean, or lend your services to a veteran or military family in your neighborhood. You can find more ways to serve your local vets through serve.org or by visiting your local VAC office.
Are you a business owner or hiring manager? Veterans make exceptional team members and are proven to be great leaders and fast learners that excel under pressure. Veterans were trained with a variety of skills that are valuable to any business, and the federal government will even help pay for further training to suit your business’ specific needs. List your business’ job openings and find out more about employing vets on through any of the LDVA partner sites devoted to helping vets find meaningful work.
