The Foundation's educational activities inform the community at- large about local veterans' needs and apprise the veterans' community of available financial assistance and social services.
Since its incorporation in 2004, the Foundation has provided close to $30,000 each year in financial assistance to Citrus County veterans or their surviving spouses.
