VA Chapter 2 will be hosting our annual Veterans Day Poker Run to raise funds for “Able Forces‘ ” annual “Adopt a Warrior Family for Christmas Program.” They are a non-profit organization that serves combat injured service members.
The mission of Able Forces is to address the critical employment and training needs of our combat injured veterans of OEF/OIF and all disabled veterans. They emphasize continuity of support and focus on providing employment opportunities and community-based job preparation training to our Nation’s heroes suffering from Severe Physical Disabilities, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and minor to profound Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Able Forces’ annual “Adopt a Warrior Family for Christmas” program provides the following to warrior families:
• A Christmas tree
• Dinner for the family
• Stocking Stuffers
• Presents for the family
The cost allocated per family is $500. Last year, we were able to raise enough funds to donate $1,500 and support three families. We would like to break that record this year. Come on out and support this very worthy cause.
