 Where does the Money Go?

 

Tom Whitmore Post 28 of The American Legion

Where do the Veterans Relief Funds go? These funds help Veterans in the region. We help Veterans who have exhausted efforts to put food on the table, who overextended their funds due to a unforeseen household emergency, an unexpected extra living expense when the Veteran is on a fixed income, when the Veteran is stranded in the area and needs emergency funds to make it a little further. Veterans with children and our senior homebound Veterans are always a priority to help. We do verify that the person is a Veteran and assess each case. We also cooperate between other Veteran organizations in the area to ensure that the immediate need is satisfied.

 

The Tom Whitmore Post 28 of the American Legion distributes these funds only as Cash Grants.
