District Grain has officially partnered with Charity Checkout to begin accepting donations for the
Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America Organization.
Founded in 2004 by an Iraq veteran, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) is the first and largest organization for new veterans and their families, with nearly 300,000 members and supporters nationwide. IAVA is a 21st century veterans’ organization dedicated to standing with the 2.6 million veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan from their first day home through the rest of their lives.
IAVA strives to build an empowered generation of veterans who provide sustainable leadership for our country and their local communities. We work toward this vision through programs in four key impact areas: supporting new veterans in health, education, employment and building a lasting community for vets and their families. We create impact in those critical areas through assistance to veterans and their families, raising awareness about veterans’ issues and advocacy for supportive policy from the federal to the local level.
Assistance: Through both online and on-the-ground engagement, IAVA creates, optimizes and expands assistance to veterans. IAVA hosts hundreds of events nationwide each year, creating opportunities for vets and their families to connect with each other and gain access to customized health care, education and employment services. Online, IAVA provides a unique support network that empowers veterans to connect with one another, fostering a strong and lasting community.
Awareness: IAVA advances public awareness around the unique challenges and opportunities facing new vets. IAVA makes veterans a part of the national media conversation, shaping the dialogue and connecting the 99% of the population who have not served in Iraq or Afghanistan with the 1% who have.
Advocacy: IAVA advocates for policies that benefit veterans and their families.
IAVA MISSION & VISION:
Mission: Improve the lives of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families.
Vision: An empowered generation of veterans who provide sustainable leadership for our country and their communities.
