RTW VET CENTER BUILDING DRIVE FUNDRAISER
November 14, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
About the Purpose
The RTW Veteran Center is a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit that has been open since February of 2011 running twelve programs to improve the local community. The biggest among its many programs is its healthy soup kitchen which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week including holidays. In 2013 the center served over 50,000 free meals to Chicago’s homeless veterans and others. The center also provides free clothes, housing and housing placement, job placement & training, operates a free computer lab, and has two sustainable gardens that provide fresh produce to the community. The center also operates a Young Soldiers Leadership Program as a part of its Gang Intervention Initiative.
“The RTW Veteran Center is not a part of the Veterans Administration. It is a seperate non-for-profit that operates on a 100% volunteer staff financed by contributions from supporters like you.”
This fundraiser was created to pay off the building. In order to keep offering our services and helping the local community, the RTW Veteran Center needs to secure the building and fully pay off the mortgage. The money freed up will help with essential costs and organization that’s imperative to the centers financial viability.
