Collingswood, NJ: ARMing Heroes (www.armingheroes.org), the collection industry’s charity for military veterans, today announced the start of its sixth annual No Debts for Vets Charity Fundraising Drive, which runs from September 11th through Veterans Day, November 11th, every year. Tax deductible donations are now being accepted online at www.armingheroes.org and via mail to PO Box 353, Collingswood, NJ 08108, payable to ARMing Heroes.
The annual drive relies on the generosity of ARM industry companies to raise and donate funds in support of military vets and their families. IC System, Inc. (www.icsystem.com), headquartered in St. Paul, MN, has once again named ARMing Heroes as one of its chosen charities for 2015. “Each year, IC System holds a golf tournament to raise funds for charitable non-profit organizations,” said I.C. System’s Roxanne Bdzok in a letter to ARMing Heroes. “Our employees vote for which organization they would like IC System to make a donation towards, and once again their choice was ARMing Heroes. We are proud to present the charity with a donation again this year.”
Other ARM firms across the nation are already showing support of this worthy cause, giving this year’s drive a stronger than ever start. Your company can follow suit by signing up to hold a drive here. Once you register, downloading the Employee Fund Drive Starter Kit makes it easy to get started. In four easy steps, the kit outlines what is needed to announce, manage, and complete a successful employee drive. Additionally, any company that holds a drive and donates to the charity will receive Donor Dog Tags to commemorate their support of military veterans.
Last year, donors contributed the largest amount of funds raised since the organization’s inception in 2009. As a result, nearly four dozen grants were awarded to struggling military vets and their families, most of which were disbursed to the creditors of grant recipients at the end of the year, just in time for the holidays. Many grant awards averaged close to $2000, with the largest grant at $5000. Most grant recipients struggle with service-connected disabilities, unemployment, and delinquent debt, and have turned to ARMing Heroes to help get their lives back on track.
Stories of past grant recipients remind us all how rewarding this program can be. However, none of it would be possible without the support of generous donors within the ARM industry. The charity’s flagship No Debts for Vets Charity Fundraising Drive kicks-off today, September 11th, and continues through Veterans Day, November 11th. Companies interested in getting involved are urged to visit www.armingheroes.org for more information.
