Ring in the New Year!!

!!Welcome Home Kits!!

895 total, since we started

235 kits in 2022

I cannot express how proud I am of all the lodges and the hard work and dedication members are doing for our Veterans.  2022 has been an amazing year.

We've distributed 895 Welcome4 Home Kits since the program started.  That's about $270,000 in aide.  Over 200 Military and Veteran families received holiday meals, 1,464 backpacks were distributed to Military and Veteran Families in the State.  287 military families, with almost 1000 children received holiday toys for under the tree for Christmas.

Washington State is definitely the A Team when it comes to support for our Service Members and Veterans.  You are all truly amazing!
