As the Director of Charitable Events, Desiree reached out to my Facebook friends and asked ” Does anyone know a veteran who needs help? Our charity, Rallye for Vets is poised to directly pay medical or mortgage payment for veterans in need. Let me know! ” She almost immediately got a message asking for financial aid. We were able to quickly get the veteran to fill out our form, get us the required documents, and keep him in the home he’s been renting for almost 3 years. It total it took us about 3 days from being aware there was a veteran in need to writing a certified check to the landlord. You really never know who is struggling. Sometimes all you have to do is ask.
