December was a little merrier for two local non-profit organizations that support older veterans and the homeless. Federal’s generous donations to Honor Flight Twin Cities and Involve MN will help these organizations continue their good work into 2021.
Honor Flight Twin Cities, founded by Jerry and Jana Kyser, is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s World War II and Korean Veterans for all their sacrifices. They transport our heroes at no cost to Washington D.C to visit and reflect at their memorials. Since 2008, 1,600 WWII veterans, 350 Korean veterans, and 12 terminally ill Vietnam veterans have been honored on 22 Honor Flights.
Involve MN, founded by Minneapolis Police Officer Grant Snyder, is a Minnesota based Non-Profit where community, business and government partner to help those struggling with homelessness on our Minneapolis and St. Paul area streets. We provide organized outreach, targeted resource allocation, and supportive mentoring to those in greatest need.
