This year, we’ve been given the incredible opportunity to participate in SwingShift and the Stars (http://swingshiftandthestars.org/). It is an amazing fundraising platform that has helped organizations like ours to raise funds and awareness in the community.
Through participation in SwingShift, our organizational goal is to raise $65,000. Though our immediate goal is to help veterans in need, our long-term mission is to build a self-sustaining transitional housing community for veterans, here in northern Michigan.
22-2-NONE has a board made up of veterans who are passionate about raising awareness to the alarming rate of Veterans committing suicide every day: It adds up to over 8000 per year. Along with raising awareness, we have helped our local veteran community in many ways; including utility bills, mortgage and rent payments, vehicles and repairs, or even simply a listening ear. These small gestures can be lifesaving, literally.
With your help, we can better the lives of our veterans and reduce the stressors that can sometimes be too much to bear. You will not only be making a donation, but an investment in the lives of veterans in our community.
