COVID-19 Emergency Assistance
The Coronoavirus, COVID-19, is impacting Florida’s veterans, active duty military members and their families. As many organizations are being forced to close their doors, our veterans are unable to work and provide an income to support their families.
PROJECT: VetRelief, a program of The American Legion, Department of Florida is teaming up with the Florida Veterans Foundation to support those who are affected by this pandemic. PROJECT: VetRelief has an established program that supports our service members during an emergency and uses the state-wide infrastructure of the Florida Legion to facilitate our application process.
We are anticipating that we will be see a substantial increase in the number of applications requesting assistance over the next few months. However, we are committed to doing what we can to support Florida’s active duty military members, veterans, and their families, but resources are limited.
We are grateful for the Florida Veterans Foundation and their efforts in putting together a campaign to support those service members who are experiencing a hardship during this time. Both programs are privately funded and are not equipped to fund the expected demand of our veteran community and will rely on the support of corporations and individuals.
Please find it in your heart to donate so that we can make a greater impact and support all service members who need us during this chaotic time.
