Doylestown veterans groups awarded state grants

Three Doylestown veterans groups have been awarded $37,312 through the Veteran Trust Fund Grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA).
American Legion Post 210 will receive $12,500, Operation Homefront will receive $10,000 and Bucks County Veterans Affairs will receive $14,812, according to state Sen. Steve Santarsiero (D-10) and state Rep. Wendy Ullman (D-143).
“... these funds will help continue their important work of providing services and support to those who have served our country in the armed services,” said Santarsiero.
Ullman thanked those who have donated to the commonwealth’s Veteran Trust Fund. “Veterans have taken care of us all for generations, and this is an important way we can keep saying thank you,” she said.
Veteran Trust Fund Grants are funded by Pennsylvanians who voluntarily made a $3 donation when applying for or renewing their driver’s license or photo ID, or when renewing a motor vehicle registration. Additional funding comes from the sale of “Honoring Our Veterans” and “Honoring Our Women Veterans” license plates, and from private donations. For information, visit the DMVA website.
