Armed Forces Thanksgiving Sponsors,


On behalf of the Armed Forces Thanksgiving committee, we wish to thank you for your support of our 5th Annual Armed Forces Thanksgiving that was cancelled due to the Covid-19 virus.  It is community members like you who realize the freedoms we enjoy are a result of the tremendous sacrifices our military personnel have made. 


As you know, the Armed Forces Thanksgiving has partnered with the West Michigan Veterans Coalition and have donated just over $200,000 these past 4 years. Your donations allow the coalition to continue to support the programs and resources that provide critical support to our local veterans.


During these challenging times, it is important to remember that we are far stronger working together than alone. To that end, the West Michigan region has a long and storied history of coming together to support one another and we are confident that we will do so now.  


Thank you again for your ongoing commitment to the Armed Forces Thanksgiving and the military members we are so very grateful to support through this event. May God bless you and may God bless America.  Please Save the Date for May 21, 2021, we look forward to sharing more information with you in the future as we continue our wonderful partnership in support of the men and women of our Armed Forces – past, present and future.  Please find a receipt for your donation attached.


Warm Regards,
