Veterans United Home Loans is launching their #HereForOurHeroes campaign
, a measure that involves writing messages of support to National Guardsmen, first responders, healthcare workers and other military personnel who are serving on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic response.
Messages of support can be submitted online and will be printed on postcards and sent with Operation Gratitude care packages.
In addition to the online message writing campaign, Veterans United pledged $250,000 in financial support to Operation Gratitude for care packages shipments to 50,000 military COVID-19 frontline responders. Shipments have already been distributed to 14,450 National Guard personnel deployed in California, New York, Louisiana, Michigan, Tennessee, Delaware and Florida.
“Community support can be a huge morale booster during emergency responses,” said John Quin, director of communications at Veterans United Home Loans who has served on several state emergency missions with the National Guard. “We hope this can enhance the lives of service members and first responders. The sacrifices they are making across the country are key to getting us through this pandemic.”
