My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for BVL Fund Inc, Fairfax, VA, USA
The Bowlers to Veterans Link or BVL is a wonderful organization that assists both active & veteran service men & women. I am amazed on a daily basis how much work goes into this organization with such a small administrative staff that do an awesome job. Also playing a HUGE roll are the many very dedicated volunteers across the United States. I have been one of these volunteers and have been able to see firsthand how these donations can better a veteran’s life. With the monies generated by the BVL veterans are given the opportunity to participate in many different activities and events such as the Winter Sports Clinic held in Snowmass CO that I have been honored to attend for the past 5 years and the Wheelchair Games. Some activities/events they may have never attempted some they have done in the past or some that they thought they would never be able to do again. In turn they are able to take the lessons and skills learned at the various activities/events or clinics they attend and apply them at home. They are shown that just because you may be suffering from an illness or injury there is no reason to give up or give in. In many instances it is considered one of the biggest motivators to get them out and lead an active lifestyle.
