Cause of the Week: Military & Veterans Services

Active-Duty Member Support; Veterans (Veterans Day, Nov. 11); Military Families; Rehabilitation; Counseling; Medical Services; Job Training / Workforce Reentry  

The United States is blessed to have over 1.5 million currently serving active-duty members in the military and over 17 million veterans who served in our nation’s defense. While these selfless individuals preserve and protect freedom around the globe, the price of their service is never free. Military members and their loved ones endure long separations, frequent moves, distance from extended family, and service-related health issues.  

It is the responsibility of a grateful nation to thank veterans and active-duty members for their service by caring for them and their families. CFC charities send children of military families to college through scholarship programs, offer mental health support, provide service animals to wounded warriors, and improve veterans’ transition into civilian life. 

$59 films a deployed service member reading a bedtime story and sends it to their children. Here’s how your CFC donations help to change the world for our nation’s heroes through military and veterans services: 

  • $29 provides a military member serving overseas with a personal first aid kit. 

  • $59 films a deployed service member reading a bedtime story and sends it to their children. 

  • $100 puts one of our nation's heroes in the stands of a major sporting event.
