It’s been another great year here at Veteran Energy. With the support of our caring customers, our total giveback to Support Our Heroes climbed to $663,916 by the end of 2019.
Through our trusted Affinity Partners, that money is making a positive impact in the lives of our Texas veterans, military members and their families. Here are some of the highlights from these partners over the last year.
Paws for Heroes
- Adopted, trained and placed five new dogs with deserving Texas veterans in 2019 (and helped find homes for two other shelter rescues)
- Raised more than $58,000 with the help of Texas veteran Kip Othold, who trekked across the U.S. on a bike to raise money for the group. Kip also gave several thousand dollars of his own money to the group and plans to do another ride for Paws for Heroes in 2020.
