Five Seasons Republican Women Support Local Vets

Five Seasons Republican Women Support Local Vets

Cedar Rapids Republican Women Continue Bus Ticket Donations

At FSRW meetings, there's a jar on each table that says "Bus Tickets for Vets". Our generous members donate what they can to help those who have served our country.  It's a little thing to assist our military veterans, but it adds up to a lot.
Every year for the past 5 years, FSRW has contriubted these table donations to the Linn County Veteran Affairs. That's over $1000 toward bys passes for unemployed, underemployed, or homeless vets in this community.
We care for America, and care about our vets. And we will continue to help until there are no more struggling veterans.
