This is not a completely free site and even though it does not cost to join.. Normal membership is 20.00 a year for belonging to United Veterans. We have always waived membership. This may no longer be an option . We may ask for a first of the year donation to help things running.
The board has asked for at least 5.00 from each member. We need your support. We do not depend on grants or membership fees ..just donations. Our year end is Feb 20... and the donations this year have been down lower than in it's existence. We cannot continue this way.
This year our expenses exceeded donations by more than 1,000.00.
This organization is pretty much pay as you go. We budget for at least 4,000 a year. This year we came no where near that amount.
Final figures are still being tallied but according to the Bank records ....the organization had to pay for two needy veterans out of pocket with no help from the outside. Three dinners and one Christmas was bought for a veteran.
We paid 340.00 for a light bill.
We paid 500.00 for car expenses for a veteran with brain cancer.
We paid 75.00 Secretary of State Expenses
There is still an outstanding balance of 300.00 for gas expenses.
There was a donation of 20.00 to the Cancer Society for Scotty Decker's memory.
There was a donation made for an Afghinstan veteran of 25.00. Lake City, Florida.
No expenses were covered for any board members and their efforts to help.
