USA CARES INC
July 25, 2011
Three years ago I was looking for a Military charity to become involved with. Fortunately General Colin Powell and Lt. Colonel Oliver North were in Louisville to speak during the springtime. I asked each of them seperately which organization I should try to get involved with. Both of these men immediately urged me to seek out USA Cares ,which is just 40 minutes from my home in Louisville. I solicited a few people I knew on the Board and within a year I was a Board member. I can say from first hand experience the Board and the staff exist to serve military families who are in financial crisis. Every effort is made to raise more and more money which will go to these deserving families. Of all the non-profits I have been involved with USA Cares is the most focused on executing their mission. It is truly a wonderful organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have seen the effect on the military families who we serve first hand. We have many, many military families who are grateful for our help in saving their home from foreclosure, putting food on their table, and keeping the electricity on.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Add as many Board members as possible. Simply stated, more Board members represents more resources to help our military families.
Board Member & I work with individuals and corporations in the local community who care about our mission and are willing to contribute their money to our many programs.
