Culbertson School Students, Staff To Participate In “Jeans For Troops”

Culbertson School is participating in the “Jeans For Troops” fundraising drive to benefit the GI Go Fund for returning veterans.
The GI Go Fund is nonprofit organization that helps veterans returning home find employment, go to college, access their health care and financial benefits, and link to housing.  
During the drive, which has schools and companies from all across the country participating in Culbertson School will honor Memorial Day and the men and women who have died defending our country by raising funds for military veterans and their families.
Culbertson School gave its employees and students the opportunity to wear jeans in exchange for a $5 donation to the GI Go Fund.
The organization did tremendous work in 2014 helping veterans obtain greater access to health care services, working with members of Congress in the wake of the VA scandal to implement legislation that gives veterans the ability to use their VA benefits to receive private health care.
Proceeds from this program will go to help the organization further its mission for veterans. The organization is currently looking to provide veterans with the tools and resources they need to find a steady job, from providing veterans with career mentorship to helping them access job training resources that will help them find employment with companies looking to hire veterans.
For more information about the GI Go Fund, or to see all the schools and business that are participating in the “Jeans for Troops” drive, visit www.gigofund.org.
