13th Annual Thank a Vet Day Raises More Than $29,000 for Lenawee County Veterans

TLC Community Credit Union presents a $29,617.40 check at the Thank a Vet eventOn Nov. 9, WLEN Radio hosted its 13th Annual Thank a Vet Day. This event celebrates Veterans Day and helps raise funds and awareness for homeless and other veterans in need in Lenawee County.

In 12 hours, $29,617.40 was raised for the “Veterans Dire Needs Fund,” distributed through Housing Help of Lenawee. WLEN staff, local veterans’ organizations and area business people stood curbside and collected funds to support local veterans, which are distributed throughout the year to local veterans for assistance with rent, mortgage payments to avoid foreclosure, utility bills, rental facilities to store possessions when they are displaced, transportation stipends and for things as simple as a pair of boots to secure employment.

Once again this year, TLC Community Credit Union joined WLEN with a matching funds program, matching donations to the Happy Hundred Club by 50 percent, which raised an additional $8,000.00 from TLC. To date, more than $200,000.00 has been raised in this event and distributed to local veterans in Lenawee County.
