Bowlers to Veterans Link has raised more than $ 55 million for veterans over the decades — 80 years in all.
Quest'anno, it’s donating $ 500,000 to a pro-veterans organization to help it continue to serve America’s veterans across the country.
That is four times the amount it donated last year to the same cause.
“We’re very grateful for the donation for our vets centers,” said Jessica Schiefer of the National Association of State Veterans’ Homes, parlando su “Volpe & Fine settimana degli amici” di sabato.
“It’s allowed us and furthered enabled us to have recreational activities across the country. It allows veterans to get out and reconnect with other veterans. [They can] overcome fears and accomplish their goals,” lei ha aggiunto.
Jonathan Spier of the same organization said, “The national association has 161 state homes across the country. Bowlers to Veterans Link has supported us for decades. We’re introducing a new virtual reality program,” Ha aggiunto.
He said they’ve used it on Long Island, N.Y., over the past five years — and now they’re rolling it out nationally so that even more veterans can make use of it.
