The great people at Wells Fargo are dedicated to making sure those who served our country are taken care of in times of crisis.
Our entire team at MACV would like to thank Wells Fargo for committing $75,000 to support our mission and ensure Veteran’s have the security they need for the challenges ahead.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in Minnesota, we had identified 276 Veterans without a home. Changes to our “new normal” are causing several closures and restrictions that are creating additional barriers to these Veterans, their families, and hundreds of others who have served. Veterans and their families may be struggling to work or gain access to the resources they need. Our Veterans remain resilient, yet they and their families often live at the low end of financial security and continue to struggle to find or maintain safe housing.
These funds will provide services such as short-term rent and income supports for those temporarily laid off due to workplaces shutting down, or food and grocery delivery for Veterans who are unable to safely use public transit are both examples of ways to support our Veterans during this time.
