When: March 26, 2022, from 10 AM to 5 PM
Where: American Legion Post 110, 3152 Harbor Boulevard, Port Charlotte, FL 33952
Who: American Legion District 13 Family and American Legion Department of Florida will conduct the Veteran Suicide Awareness Event and Project:VetRelief Resource Fair.
Why: American Legion District 13 along with American Legion Department of Florida Project:VetReliefe are educating about Veteran’s suicide and prevention and is proud to bring the Veterans Suicide Awareness Event and Resource Fair to Port Charlotte for the second year.
This event and Project:VetRelif Resource Fair is a premier fundraising event where the money raised allows PROJECT: VetRelief to fulfill its core mission of assisting Florida’s veterans, active-duty military members, and their families in their time of need. They can confront issues by addressing a veteran’s, service member’s and family member’s condition in a time of crisis, working to secure benefits, and offering a support system. PROJECT:VetRelief provides services to lessen the burden carried by our veteran, servicemen and women and deter these significant issues from affecting their lives.
As a committed Veterans organization, the American Legion’s mission is built on a promise from men and women who swore with their lives to defend and protect the United States through military service. The promise begins at enlistment, grows through training and discipline in the U.S. Armed Forces and continues after discharge, as veterans in service to community, state, and nation. In times of crisis, The American Legion steps into the turmoil and fights to provide needed assistance for others.
The Veterans Suicide Awareness Event and Project:VetRelief Resource Fair will include mental health, suicide, therapy or counseling, service dog, homeless, women veteran, caregiver, and family resources. The event will have children’s activities, Veteran band Blackbird Anthem, and a Vietnam Veteran Pinning.
