Battle for the Vets Fundraising Campaign

Thursday, October 1 – Friday, November 20, 2020

Show your support for Veterans by participating in our inaugural Battle for the Vets Fundraising Campaign. So, what is Battle for the Vets?

Battle for the Vets is a one of a kind and extremely fun peer-to-peer fundraiser being introduced to the Phoenix market and will become U.S.VETS — Phoenix’s signature fundraising event to be held in late summer/fall of each year. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 event will be completely Virtual and anyone in the community or even the country can post a video of themselves lip syncing to their favorite song and challenge others to donate and/or post a video of themselves lip syncing.

Let’s BATTLE it out and raise money for our VETS.

Leadership

Executive Director

Michelle Jameson

Michelle Jameson is the Executive Director for U.S.VETS — Phoenix.

Jameson spent the last four years working as the education social services manager with Salt River Indian Community Schools in Scottsdale-a multi-faceted job that entailed everything from overseeing day-to-day operations at four sites to making home visits to acting as liaison between state, federal and local representatives and the Native American families they served.

During her tenure at Salt River, she was nominated and recognized as one of the Top 5 Employees (out of 7,600), for her “outstanding commitment and leadership.”

Before moving to Arizona, she worked for more than a decade in Minnesota schools. During that time, she designed and launched an alternative learning center in Pelican Rapids, MN. She holds a Master of Science in Educational Administration from Minnesota State University.
