Today, ARVets is joining other nonprofit organizations across the state for ArkansasGives, a one-day giving event to raise funds and awareness for charitable organizations in the state.

In Arkansas, ARVets is on the front lines developing programs, initiating partnerships, and providing services that have already helped over 3,000 Veterans and military families. Funds collected during today’s ArkansasGives event will grant ARVets the resources necessary to increase outreach efforts.

Right now, between 8am and 8pm, you have an opportunity to donate to ARVets and those contributions can be matched with additional funds from a matching pool of $250,000 from the Arkansas Community Foundation.
