THE VMC IS A TEAM EFFORT
It isn’t solely Veterans Miracle Center Erie assisting Veterans – local businesses, individuals, unions, non-profits and various Veteran organizations have joined hearts and hands to help provide basic life necessities to our men and women Veterans. Many are low income Veterans who are struggling to provide for their families, or are disabled and in need of someone to offer a helping hand.
IT IS GUIDANCE
A Veteran’s needs can be overwhelming. It is time to do everything we can to alleviate the stress and pressure on our Veterans. By providing this help we believe we can lighten the load so many of them carry and offer guidance and assistance along the way.
IT IS PROVISION
Veterans Miracle Center Erie provides humanitarian aid to our struggling men and women Veterans in the form of new clothing, hygiene products, housewares and more. We also work with various Veterans organizations to assist the Veteran in need.
“All gave some – some gave all.” To you, a Veteran of the United States Military, these are not mere words but a reality. To give yourself to defend and protect our nation cost you something – some paid the ultimate price, while others are left with broken bodies, a broken mind, or a broken heart. The toll that war takes on a man echos far beyond the battlefield. We recognize the price you’ve paid then and now, and we sincerely thank you. We thank you for what you’ve done for us, and now we’d like to give back to you.
Our service to you pales in comparison to the sacrifice you’ve made for the freedom we carry today, but it is our mission to see that Veterans and their families are recognized, cared for, and thriving.
