Minority Veterans of America is accepting applications for the Winter Wish Project 2021.
It's the end of the year and with the rising cost of goods, inflation, and a years' long pandemic, Minority Vets knows winter has been tough. Join them for the Winter Wish Project. They're spreading some winter joy to members of the Minority Vets community by fulfilling the wishes of minority veteran families.
What does that mean? They're looking for minority veterans who could use a little extra support this winter to provide for their families. If selected, Minority Vets will provide up to $200 in gift card or direct financial relief (dependent on location). Priority will be given to new applicants this winter but past Winter Wish Project recipients are welcome and encouraged to apply.
The deadline to regsiter for the Winter Wish Project is December 15, 2021 at midnight. After that, they will review applications on a rolling basis until all spots on the Wish List have been filled. They will send notifications of selection by December 16th. If selected, they will provide your funds within 48 hours of notification to you and your family.
