U.S.VETS – Washington D.C. is grateful for the support of the customers at Safeway in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Florida who participated in the “Give for Those Who Gave So Much” campaign on November 4-13, 2016. The campaign raised an outstanding $165,000 to be split between three D.C.-area veterans organizations. Thanks to their efforts, U.S.VETS received $55,000 to provide assistance in career training, social activities and rehab programs, and support to the families of military veterans.
“Without the Safeway Foundation partnership, we would not be able to provide the holistic services over 800 veterans each year,” said Clifton Lewis, Executive Director. “Thank you, Safeway customers, for supporting our mission of the successful transition of military veterans and their families through the provision of housing, counseling, career development and comprehensive services.”
