VA Claims Insider Donates $10,000 for Veterans Care
(Austin, TX) -- VA Claims Insider (VACI) CEO Brian Reese and Caritas of Austin today announced a joint effort to provide expanded services for veterans who have been affected by COVID-19.
“We know veterans have a different set of needs during this COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why we’re donating $10,000 and partnering with Caritas of Austin to make sure those who’ve served get the care they need,” Reese said.
“We are so grateful for the coordination and generosity of VA Claims Insider. Due to the unexpected crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic many of our veterans are at imminent risk of experiencing homelessness again. This donation will allow Caritas of Austin to keep veterans housed and provide continued rapid rehousing services,” said Jezzmen McPeters, Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program Manager at Caritas of Austin.
