Vacuum Cleaner Hospital, Chapel Hill, has reached out to area veterans through the Veterans of Foreign Wars. They are holding a local raffle for customers to raise money and awareness of the need to help veterans. Customers donate $10 and have a chance to win a new vacuum cleaner that has been decorated with a patriotic theme.
The money raised will go to our Veterans Relief Fund. This fund supports needy veterans and their families. It can be assistance to a homeless veteran, vets undergoing long-term care at the Durham VAMC, student scholarships, student veterans needing special financial assistance (books, laptop, etc.), veterans with disabilities, disaster relief, and more.
Our Post has several programs and projects to help us raise well over $2,000 each year for our Veterans Relief Fund. Our fund is not used by our local post members for post support and operations. One hundred percent of our fund dollars go to help those in need.
We thank the great folks at the Vacuum Cleaner Hospital for remembering our veterans and for selecting the Veterans of Foreign Wars as the recipient of their donation.
You can participate and purchase raffle tickets until the date of the drawing: Tuesday, July 31st. Visit the Vacuum Cleaner Hospital on South Elliott Rd., Chapel Hill. For more information on their services and products, visit their website.
