$500,000 from the Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund Supports VETS Canada’s Guitars for Vets

OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to advise that VETS Canada was awarded $500,000 from the Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund to support the Guitars for Vets program, which matches Veterans and still-serving CAF members suffering from PTSD or other service-related disabilities with gently-used guitars and online/volunteer lessons.
The Government of Canada’s Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund provides grants and contributions to private, public or academic organizations to support research, initiatives and projects that enhance the well-being of Veterans and their families.
