TorHoerman Law will be closing its offices on Friday to celebrate Veterans Day, a day set aside to honor the great men and women who have served our country and risked their lives to protect our freedoms. It is easy to forget the reason why most of us get a day off of work on November 11th. While it is a nice way to relax and spend time with family and friends, Veterans Day is also meant to be a day for reflecting on the sacrifices of our service men and women and honoring those individuals through recognition and charitable service.
Unfortunately, our veterans do not get the recognition and support that they deserve year-round. Many veterans still battle the after-effects of service on a daily basis – medical and mental health issues such as PTSD or financial instability to help their families. Luckily, there are thousands of charities to help aid our vets. But these charities do not have the means to help every veteran in need.
This is where you come in. Giving back to our vets is not as hard as one may think. In fact, this week many local businesses are offering “giving back programs”, donating a portion of their profits to veteran aid charities. There are also a number of financially responsible charities with the sole mission of supporting our active duty troops, veterans, and their families. So, while you are enjoying your extra time off this weekend, take a minute to give back to the men and women who have served. Whether it be giving to a charity, donating time at your local VA or VFW, or visiting a business that offers “giving back programs.” The men and women who have sacrificed everything deserve a little sacrifice from us.
Below are a few businesses who will be giving part of their profits back to veterans this weekend:
This year, you can easily make a $5 donation to veterans via text. By texting “Soldiers” to 20222, you will automatically donate $5 to Soldiers Angels. Soldiers Angels is a nonprofit organization, through which ordinary American citizens can “adopt” a military serviceman or servicewoman who is serving overseas by sending gifts, care packages, calling cards and/or specialized equipment like sand scarves. Again, just text the word “Soldiers” to 20222 to make a $5 contribution.>
Although it is always great to donate to a charitable organization, it is important to know who you are giving to. Some charities go the extra mile to give back, while others don’t quite live up to the highest standards. It is hard to tell which veteran’s charities do the best work. Luckily, charitynavigator.org offers a comprehensive list of charitable organizations dedicated to giving back to our active duty troops, veterans, and their families. These charities have been deemed financially responsible, accountable, and transparent.
TorHoerman Law was responsible for handling a medical case for our family. I was extremely impressed with their professionalism and ability to react quickly. They also did a nice job keeping us updated with the case throughout the process. This was the first time experiencing a situation like this and Tor Hoerman law did an excellent job from start to finish.
