Ok, we are up and running again folks. This gofundme account is for helping the military people. Mostly it's for items to either put into the Care Boxes or to pay for the postage to mail those boxes, but we've extended the help of the account to include helping our returning veterans in emergencies. Example: filing fee to get a truck drivers license transferred from Alaska to Texas, meals and rooms for a veteran going across country for PTSD treatment, meals for homeless veterans, backpacks for military kids, etc. IF we have enough money at Christmas we help 2 military families by buying gifts or food for Christmas. Thank you all for your help. You will receive a tax receipt for your donation, as I will make the cash donation to the Care Box account at the VFW Post 430 in Canyon, TX in YOUR name. YOU will receive the receipt. I can also take donations to this account over the phone OR by email.
Will you please help us continue sending Care Boxes to our military troops overseas? We have sent over 8000 Care Boxes since 2002. I know people are tired of the war and our military is tired of being away from home, but we CAN and DO make a difference in their lives just by sending a boxes filled with goodies and filled with love. We need help to keep sending these boxes. Postage is our biggest obstacle. Postage has gone up again and fundraising is down. We need your help. $5.00 , $10.00 any amount of money helps. Your Donation is tax deduction because the VFW is a non-profit. You will get your tax receipt in the mail if you leave your name and address. Thank you so much for any help.
I'm discontinuing this account until I get the tax ID and non-profit checking account number for the VFW that I will be associated from now on. Thank you for your continued support. We will continue sending Care Boxes to our overseas troops as long as we have funds to do so.
I want to update Care Boxes status. We are now under the VFW Post 430 in Canyon, Tx. They already had a a Care Boxes program and I just brought all the donations made through America Supports You Texas to the VFW account and we will continue to send Care Boxes. Donations can either be made on this site or mailed to VFW Post 430, % Verlene Dickson,
P O Box 417, Canyon, TX 79015.
100% of the money goes to the care boxes or supplies for the boxes. Thank you!!!!! We are Amarillo based and are ALL volunteers.....no salaries or overhead. I send a tax receipt email for every donation as we are non-profit and tax deductible!
This account goes into my personal account, then I take the money out and deposit the cash into the VFW's account, which is a non-profit account and YOU will receive a tax receipt because the money will be donated in YOUR name.
We have extended what we do with the money. We still send Care Boxes and have sent over 8000 Care Boxes overseas to our troops. Now we are also helping our returning veterans in several different ways, such as helping young families at Christmas to buy gifts for their children, room and board for a veteran to get to his treatment for PTSD, meals for homeless veterans, help with baby showers for wives of veterans or the veteran themselves, emergency funds for other reason. ALL the money goes to help our military. I have been doing this since 2002 and people that KNOW me KNOW I do what I say and say what I do.
