AUSA recognizes the current challenging business environment. Between COVID-19 and the recent riots, every business has been affected. Times are tough and capital is tight. However, we hope in these difficult times, you will continue to support as the soldiers and their families don’t get days off. They keep marching on to protect our freedom, liberty and way of life. We at the Vessey Chapter of AUSA are dedicated to continuing our support of the military community through the following programming:
1. Toys 4 Military Kids reaches all branches of the Military. During the 2019 Holiday Season, this program provided toys to 60 military units (3,100 children of the military!) and 238 individual Military Families in five states.
2. VA/Polytrauma Spinal Unit Support: Patients, together with their families and staff, enjoyed a Holiday Party complete with gifts, Santa treats, music and dancing. In addition, we support these warriors throughout the year by giving $5,000 annually to finance opportunities for the patients to reintegrate off campus where hospital resources are not available.
3. Troops for Tomorrow: J/ROTC Leadership, Scholarship and Running Events: Supporting the high school and college youth with awards, scholarships and opportunities in leadership and travel. The Vessey Chapter supports teams to Bataan Memorial Death March, Army Ten Miler and in 2021 are looking forward to collaboration with Get in Gear 5K Corporate challenge.
