While we are a local non-profit dedicated to helping veterans and their families, we also know that there are other areas that need our help. Puerto Rico, who has the largest per capita of Veterans recently suffered a devistating hurricane and our organziation wanted to make sure that we did our part to help out. On December 15, 2017 Youth 4 Vets and SW WA LULAC Council 47013 co-hosted a dinner and auction fundraiser in Vancouver, Washington to help raise funds to bring much needed supplies to the residents of Corozal, Puerto Rico.
We are excited to announce because of your generous donations, we raised almost $7000.00 for the small mountain town of Corozal, Puerto Rico.
Thanks to our community for their generous donations to our Boots on the ground for Puerto Rico fundraiser, much needed supplies were personally distributed to 78 different families including veterans and their families who are recovering from Hurricane Maria in Corozal, Puerto Rico.
