BENEFITING VETERANS

Connecticut Fallen Heroes - Connecticut Veterans Legal Center
Columbus House/Harkness House - Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes 

What: Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company and Teamsters Local 1150 will sponsor the 11th Annual Homerun for Heroes event with an in-person baseball game to benefit military veteran organizations in Connecticut. Get involved before the game with online auction and t-shirt sales to honor veterans and support sponsoring foundations.

Why You Should Help: Connecticut has more than 300,000 military veterans, and many of the veterans and their families are in need of services such as legal support, scholarships, physical therapy and temporary housing as they re-adjust to civilian life after defending our freedom. Now they could use our help.
