On Tuesday, August 12, Military Veterans Resource Center launched its Operation: Tools for School program to assist veterans and their families in need of supplies for their school-bound children. This is the first year MVRC has implemented this program and has plans to make it an annual event in support of Ohio's military families.
All veterans, military members, and spouses are eligible for this assistance when proof of service is presented to Military Veterans Resource Center between August 12, 2014 and September 15, 2014. Veterans are encouraged to contact their nearest MVRC career specialist or to call 614-230-0662 to identify their child's specific school needs and receive a gift card.
MVRC's six resource centers in Columbus, Chillicothe, Dayton, Findlay, Hamilton, and Springfield will also be accepting donations in support of the Operation: Tools for School initiative. Acceptable donations are new items for kids entering grades kindergarten through twelfth including backpacks, art supplies, binders, folders, calculators, and more. Monetary donations for this cause are also accepted.
