PVR Bulletin – April 2019
WE SALUTE – Florida Veterans Foundation
PROJECT: VetRelief gratefully received a grant from the Florida Veterans Foundation (FVF) for the support of the Emergency Assistance program. This makes the second grant our program has received from the Tallahassee based organization.
As a part of this opportunity, we provide a quarterly report to FVF that is used to influence decisions made within our state capitol. Our figures show the support that service members depend on during their difficult times; which could potentially open the door for future funding down the road.
We are so grateful for our partnership and having the ability to impact the lives of our veterans is something we are extremely proud of. The Florida Veterans Foundation, and this funding, gives us the opportunity to reach more families who need our support.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
