Vets Voice Meeting 1-10-2019

Very productive meeting this week! Here’s what we discussed.

Betty Jamora speaking about grants today. With the Elks. They can help with volunteers.

She gave us $2500. We have to track what we spend. So the grant is from the Elks National Foundation.

Grant went under Veterans. Broken up four ways. SCI, PVA, Community Living Center and Fischer house, and PIER.

John Tyler said that the money will go into our account at volunteer services.

Non profit- waiting for the attorneys. They will set everything up for us for free. We are paying filling fee. There is a waiver for filling fees. Need to find it
