AFSG Newsletter January 2019
The AFSG will have a new look this year. Not only do we have a new Club secretary Cheryl Curseaden, we are also in the process of developing a brand new web site over the next few months that should be more informative for both our membership and our sponsors.
The Sun City Grand Armed Forces Support Group will proudly celebrate its 10th anniversary with our 10th Annual Wounded Veterans Golf Event, March 8 & 9, 2019. This is an incredible milestone and a great sense of pride we should all share. To date over
$530,000 has been donated to Veteran Support Foundations who help the many Veterans returning home wounded physically and mentally from their multiple tours.
The AFSG is also very proud to have been instrumental in assisting many Grand Veteran residents recover over $4.5 million dollars in Veteran beneﬁts that some did not know they were even eligible for! Thanks to the efforts of our Veteran’s Beneﬁt Coordinator.
As positive as these accomplishments are, unfortunately, at last count, we are still losing 22 Veterans a day to suicide. Many Veterans are still struggling with their “War at Home” and will continue to need our support for years to come. Most importantly, your volunteering will continue to provide life changing support directly to our Veterans and their families. We need your help!
The AFSG needs YOUR ideas and participation now more than ever before. A number of our events have needed to be canceled because we did not have more volunteers step forward. Many hands doing a few things works much better than a few hands doing too many things. Your membership and donations are very important, in helping with Club expenses, however, donating your time is priceless. We need your time! Will you answer the call?
