The Red River Charitable Foundation (RRCF), Red River’s philanthropic organization, announces its recent donation of $18,000 to support the Friends of Veterans Heating Fund. Friends of Veterans (FoV) is an all-volunteer, certified, non-profit organization that serves veterans throughout Vermont and New Hampshire. They are dedicated to helping fellow veterans and their families improve their lives to avoid homelessness.
This donation to the heating fund comes from the generosity of Red River employees through a variety of employee fundraising programs. It’s been a long standing tradition at Red River for employees to contribute enthusiastically to the many philanthropic activities that we as a company sponsor.
Rick Bolduc, Red River CEO and RRCF President said, “We are proud to show our support, thanks and respect to local veterans for their contributions to our military. During these cold winter months in the Northeast, the company feels that providing heating assistance to our veterans is an extremely important and worthwhile initiative to support.”
Larry Daigle, FoV President, offers the following comments, “Once again I find myself in awe of the support that Red River Charitable Foundation continues to show our veterans, by way of their generous donation to Friends of Veterans, Inc. fuel assistance program. Funds for fuel assistance continues to be the most difficult to acquire. Once again it comes at a time when the need is most critical. On behalf of the whole Friends of Veterans, Inc. organization we say thanks for your continued support. Your employees’ willingness to help veterans and this worthy cause continues to amaze us and we thank them and Red River once again for this donation and the continued support of this and other fundraising events. THANK YOU!”
Red River is committed to our partnership with FoV and are honored be the major corporate sponsor again for their upcoming charity hockey game and golf tournament this year. We encourage others to support FoV and are happy to spread the word about the organization’s great contributions to our community. To learn more about FoV visit www.friendsofveteransvtnh.org.
