GM Rallies Around Families Of Servicemen - VFW National Home to Receive Millions from Buick, Pontiac and GMC; $100 from Each Vehicle Sale Supports Families of America's Heroes
EATON RAPIDS, Mich. – As a nation honors its veterans for Memorial Day, Buick, Pontiac and GMC are asking people to remember the families of soldiers, especially those who have experienced loss.
Buick, Pontiac and GMC are rallying behind the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) National Home, a place where families who have experienced loss as a result of military service can heal and learn to move on with their lives. The home, set on over 600 acres in central Michigan, is a collection of housing, education and recreational facilities designed to help the families of veterans who have experienced tragedy in their lives.
In honor of Memorial Day, Buick, Pontiac and GMC are honoring America's heroes by supporting the families at the VFW National Home. Buick, Pontiac and GMC will donate $100 to the VFW National Home for every car sold between May 22 and May 31. The divisions expect to donate several million dollars.
“In service since 1925, we give children, spouses and other displaced family members of veterans and active military personnel the help they need to get back on their feet,” said Patrice Green, Executive Director of the VFW National Home. “Some need a place to stay after losing parents or spouses overseas. Spouses need continuing education for careers to help them raise their kids as single parents. Many of these children need counseling or help with the life skills like finding a job or applying for college when they find themselves with no one left to help them.”
“On Memorial Day, it is especially appropriate to help the families who have sacrificed the most. We hope to make more people aware of these displaced families and the resources available to them through the National Home,” said John Larson, general manager for Buick, Pontiac and GMC.
