(February 10, 2012) KANSAS CITY, MO: The Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation is proud to announce a partnership with Arpin Van Lines, an American family owned and operated moving and storage company, to support the VFW Foundation’s Return the Favor campaign. Arpin will be providing the VFW Foundation with a gift of $10,000 to further its mission of supporting America’s military, veterans, and their families.
“For over 100 years, Arpin has shown a commitment to quality services to our military members, while at the same time giving back in the communities they serve,” said VFW Foundation Director John Lowe. “We cannot say enough how much we appreciate their support of the VFW Foundation and look forward to a lasting partnership in which we are able to continue to provide urgently needed assistance for America’s military and their families.”
“As an employer of veterans, we understand how crucial their personal sacrifices are to the freedom of this country,” said David Arpin, President and CEO of Arpin Van Lines. “Our company instituted a Veterans’ Special Services and Discount Program in 2010, which offers moving discounts to those who have served our country. After searching for the right veteran organization to partner with, it’s clear that the VFW Foundation is the best fit. The VFW Foundation has been an excellent communicator and has created a program that is very beneficial to the veterans. We are proud to be a partner.”
The VFW Foundation’s Return the Favor campaign supports programs and services that provide emergency financial assistance for military families, free phone calls for deployed troops, VIP treatment for service members and their families at entertainment events, morale boosting events for military units, and critical services that guide veterans through VA entitlement claims.
