Because We Care Day
AMVETS, the nation’s fourth largest veterans service organization, is distributing personal hygiene kits to their comrades at the Hefner VA Medical Center this Thursday.
AMVETS volunteers provide more than 150,000 hours of service annually at VA Medical Centers all across the country. Based on the Independent Sector formula for calculating the value of volunteer hours, AMVETS has provided more than $3,500,000 worth of service to the government in helping to provide quality care for our nation’s heroes.
Commander Jim Bean of AMVETS local Post 460 said, “Because We Care Day is our way of saying thanks for their service and sacrifices made to keep this country free.”
Post 460 also conducts local community programs such as the high school ROTC programs at both North and West Rowan high schools.
