“We know our citizens want to show their support to the service members who defended their freedoms,” said Jeffery Milligan, VANTHCS Director. “While not everyone has time to volunteer, now anyone can take five minutes online to thank Veterans in a number of ways.”
The E-Donate option allows donors to select from a number of funds at the health care system they wish to donate to. Additionally, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) administrative costs are appropriated, so donors can be sure 100 percent of their donations go to the funds they select and the Veteran patients they are choosing to support.
“Donated money at our health care system goes to Voluntary Service, Recreation, Social Work, Fisher House, Chaplain, Homeless Stand Down and Community Living Center, just to name a few,” said VANTHCS Voluntary Service Chief Bobbie Kay Scoggins. “People would be amazed if they could see how far their dollar goes toward making a difference in the lives of the people who dedicated themselves to us first.”
Donors can find the E-Donate button at www.northtexas.va.gov. The actual donation is made through a secure site at the Department of Treasury’s www.pay.gov. A minimum of $5 is required for online donation.
