Chapter Receives COVID-19 Grant

Dateline: 7/15/2020

Our chapter requested and recently received a $5000.00 grant from MOAA National Headquarters to aid veterans and their families in our community impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In this regard we are partnering and collaborating with the Veterans Council of Indian River County through the Upward American Veterans Program. These COVID relief  funds will be used provide emergency living expenses such as rent, utility bills, medical expenses or groceries to honorably discharged US military veterans and their families impacted by COVID-19.

Our chapter was 1 of 11 recipients. The Relief Fund assisted 11 of the 2020 MOAA Community Outreach Grant recipients with additional $5,000 grants.

This past April our chapter donated $1000.00 to the Veterans Council of Indian River County (VCIRC) Upward American Veterans (UAV) Program to support COVID-19 relief efforts.  Additionally, our members made individual contributions to support our veterans and families impacted by the pandemic. A special thanks to those of you so generous in supporting our veteran community.
