Contribution to Goodwill Will Support SERV Fund

The Giving Coast

To help veterans with urgent financial needs, Goodwill has the Special Emergency Resources for Veterans (SERV) Fund. SERV was launched in March of 2015 by Goodwill's Veterans Services program, in response to a growing need for emergency financial assistance for veterans and their families for housing, education and food. Recently, The Patterson Foundation awarded an honorarium to Goodwill in recognition of its support of Season of Sharing; these funds will be used to replenish Goodwill’s SERV Fund. Last year, SERV was funded in large part through a $10,000 gift from The Harry Shapiro Charitable Foundation. “We are very grateful for The Patterson Foundation’s ongoing support and all it is doing to build a stronger, more responsive community,” said Bob Rosinsky. “The needs throughout our local veterans’ community are so great and, sometimes, there is an urgent matter that requires funds to be available for distribution without a lot of bureaucracy standing in the way. With our SERV Fund replenished, we can continue to help veterans who reach out for our help – and quickly.”
