On September 29th, Show You Care for Our Heroes
In 1899, when veterans of the Spanish-American War and the Philippine Insurrection came back home, they faced numerous challenges. Wounded and sick, they had no one to lean on except themselves. Our former soldiers were left alone — no medical care, no benefits, and no pension funds.
Since no one was giving them support, they decided to band together and form a group called the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) of the United States. Various chapters of this organization were later formed throughout America. Their current membership now stands at more than 1.6 million members.
September 29th is a day when we honor the veterans who formed this organization.
Having been founded by veterans, the VFW knows full well the struggles and obstacles faced by vets when their service is over. The organization passionately fights for their rights and benefits.
Through the VFW, deserving veterans can secure scholarships, job opportunities, health services, and many other benefits.
How Best You Can Celebrate VFW Day
VFW Day this September 29th provides us an opportunity to show our gratitude and appreciation for this organization. It’s not only helping veterans but also inspiring all of us to care for those who have risked their lives on the battlefield to protect us and defend our rights.
During VFW Day, do what you can to let the members of this group know how much you appreciate their efforts. Their display of patriotism, goodwill, and love for their fellow Americans makes them true living heroes of America!
Check out these suggestions on the best things you can do for veterans on VFW Day:
- Display our flag.
Proudly wave our nation’s flag on VFW Day to show your support for our veterans. Make sure you’re mindful of the correct way of displaying our flag.
- Pay your respects to our fallen heroes.
Visit a war memorial near your area to pay respects to our fallen heroes. Honor them for their great sacrifice by taking some time to visit their graves.
- Donate to an organization that supports veterans.
Aside from VFW, other organizations provide life-enhancing services for our veterans. You don’t necessarily have to donate in cash. For example, some organizations and charities such as ours at Veteran Car Donations accept vehicle donations to support needy veterans.
Do You Want to Help Our Struggling Veterans?
Donating your old and unwanted vehicle to Veteran Car Donations will go a long way in improving the living conditions of the struggling veterans in your community. These are our former servicemen and servicewomen who are burdened by their service-related disabilities and illnesses, including mental health issues. These are our veterans who are suffering from lack of support and their inability to find jobs. As a result, many have become so impoverished that they’re forced to live on the streets begging for alms as homeless people.
Your donation will surely help in turning their lives around. We’ll auction off your vehicle and use the proceeds to support the life-changing programs and services being delivered by our charity partners to their beneficiaries. These IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofits provide needy veterans and their families with quality health care, financial aid, housing assistance, employment opportunities, family support, educational scholarships, psychotherapy services, and many other benefits.
You can donate not just your old car but almost any other type of vehicle that you no longer need.
