Tuesday, December 3rd is Giving Tuesday. On Giving Tuesday, Americans across the Nation take time to make a donation to a charity to support those less fortunate this holiday season. This year, on Giving Tuesday, we ask that you consider making a donation to Vets of Valor. Vets of Valor is an American Legion Department of Iowa Program that provides veterans with emergent needs with the financial assistance to meet those challenges.
