We're already making an impact with proceeds!
One month after books arrived from the printer, we made our first donation: supporting the printing of a book of stories from CSU's Veterans Writing Workshop.
Charlie Mike was published in summer 2020.
In July 2021 we presented a check for $7,500 to the Rocky Mountain VA Hospital to support The National Veterans Creative Arts Festival, which will be hosted in Denver in 2024.
TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) Good Grief Camp for Kids
We were humbled to donate $5000 toward this program and have a brief glimpse into the experience they provide for children and teenagers grieving the death of a military family member. Visit their website at TAPS.org.
In July 2021 we presented a check for $2,500 to the Heart-J Veterans program at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch in Loveland, CO, for their hosting of SongwritingWith:Soldiers, a retreat that pairs music industry songwriters with veterans to share their stories through song. SW:S has been featured on NPR and CBS, in the New York Times, the Washington Post and more.
In the summer of 2022, we presented a check for $5,000 to Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors to support their Good Grief camp for kids. It was a moving experience for our member who was able to experience the program first-hand when delivering the donation.
Hearts & Horses Therapeutic Riding Program
After a representative from Hearts & Horses in Loveland CO came to our unit meeting to describe their program for veterans, our members voted to donate $5000 of proceeds from SerVe to support their mission. Learn more at HeartsandHorses.org.
