Grassroots Fund Helps with COVID-19 Response

Vet to Vet Maine has set up a COVID-19 response campaign called “Here When It Counts,” to keep all Vet to Vet members informed and be available to problem solve and assist with coronavirus-related issues. Thanks to a grant from the New England Grassroots Environment Fund, Vet2Vet Maine is also offering help with groceries and supplies for the program’s veteran participants in need of assistance. The $1,000 grant, in response to the COVID-19 crisis, will be used to help pay for groceries and supplies for Vet2Vet veterans in need, supplement travel costs associated with delivering groceries and supplies, and cover the additional costs of telecommuting to reach all members of the program during these days of social isolation. For more information, questions, or requests for assistance, please contact Vet2Vet ME by calling Program Director Melissa Chason at 207-579-4024 or Exe. Dir. Susan Gold at 207-579-9204 or emailing office@vet2vetmaine.org.
