It’s almost July 4th, a time when Americans celebrate independence. We remember the many brave men and women throughout our country’s history and today—our military veterans—who fight to protect our freedom. Veterans and their families need support in a variety of areas, including housing, healthcare, and work opportunities post-service. Non-profit organizations interested in providing such services and programs can find many funding opportunities. Some examples appear below.
Yesterday, on Memorial Day we enjoyed some much-needed peace and relaxation. We barbequed, played in the pool, and enjoyed the company of the people we love. We can do this only because of the sacrifices made by those whom the day was designed to honor: the men and women who gave their lives so that we can have that peace we all cherish. Thanks and appreciation are insufficient to recognize and remember those we have lost. Perhaps the best honor is to serve as they served, and to meet the needs of those who have returned, leaving comrades on foreign soil. As we think about Memorial Day, we at TGH want to share some grants that have been created to help our nation’s military veterans and their families.
These three grants all share one quality, namely, the desire to give back to those who have already given so much.
