Lone Star Paws 4 A Cause was submitted for a grant by Foresters Financial member, Miranda Combs. She herself is a veteran and an amazing member of the community. She is a perfect example of veterans helping veterans. Our grant was approved and the activity will take place at the Schertz VFW on Oct 27, 2018. Foresters Financial members will gather, sort and assemble various care packages. These packages will contain essential supplies our veterans will need to train their personal dog as their service dog. We are so proud that Foresters Financial has selected Lone Star Paws 4 A Cause as one of their grant recipients. This grant will enable us to help veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) gain their independence and freedom.
Foresters Financial helps its members achieve their long-term financial goals while making a difference in their communities. In 2017 alone, Foresters provided over $4.4 million towards community initiatives such as Care Packages, Community Beautification, Create & Construct, Meal Help, Volunteer Support activities and Fun Family events where their members can spend quality time with their families at no cost. Members can get involved with the great work that their National Charitable Partnerships are doing by either volunteering for an activity or submitting an application through the Foresters Community Grants Program to host their own activity. The Foresters Financial community volunteer activities are a great way to bring volunteers from across your community for a cause you care about.
