VFW Post 7234 “Veterans Relief Fund”
The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7234 has for 75 years supported
Veterans, Veterans Causes, and our Local Community. We strive to be a beacon
for all Veterans and their Families by providing information, support, and
financial assistance whether members or nonmembers. Helping local Veterans when
they fall on hard times is very important to all VFWs as our motto states “no
one does more for our Veterans”. Our VFW has a Veteran Relief Fund. The purpose
of the Veteran’s Relief Fund is to help Veterans and their families in
immediate need of monetary donations with unforeseen expenses or emergencies.
Real examples from the past few years include paying for car repairs,
assistance covering rent after job loss, paying for food for a family, helping
to build a house for a disabled Veteran and Family, helping a homeless Veteran
with housing and training for a new job, and paying a utility bill that was
about to be shut off due to unforeseen circumstances. We pair the donation with
other resources and organizations and mentor these Veterans to get them back on
track. Every single penny (100%) donated or raised goes directly to assist
needy Veterans and their families. We have a detailed vetting process and pay
their bills directly. Thank You for supporting those who defended our country
and God Bless You.
Note: Operation Seas the Day was the intended July
mission project, but since OSTD was cancelled for 2020, the organizers asked
those organizations who would have donated toward the Warrior Beach Week event
to redirect those donations to other organizations serving veterans.
