This Memorial Day we remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country.
Having plenty of military veterans and service members in our own families and within the Venterra ranks, the holiday is one that is close to our hearts. The individuals on our team are, by nature, the type that care, so this Memorial Day, we thought we’d take the opportunity to suggest a few ways you can show appreciation for the servicemen and women in your life by giving back to the military community through donation.
There are so many non-profit organizations and charities dedicated to veterans that it can be hard to know where to start, but having your support maximized and aimed at the causes you find most meaningful can definitely bring some peace of mind. This list from Charity Navigator, outlining highly-rated organizations dedicated to a number of military-friendly causes, is a great place to start. From veteran financial assistance groups like Army Emergency Relief to employment-focused services like Hire Heroes USA, to organizations geared specifically to personnel injured in the line of duty like the Wounded Warrier Project, the list includes detailed information and statistics on charities covering a wide range of areas.
