MAP NEWSLETTER - NOVEMBER 2016
Support MAP this Veterans Day 2016
MAP's free legal services help veterans get out from under debt, and gain access to the health care and disability benefits they earned through their service.
This Veterans Day 2016, MAP is joined by the following local businesses in celebrating our nation’s heroes. These businesses have committed to hosting events and/or sharing proceeds from Veteran's Day with MAP.
The support of our contributors guarantees the service member access to free legal services, and every dollar donated to MAP results in an average of $10 in discharged debt. More than that, it results in the peace of mind that these clients have an advocate- someone to call; someone who will listen. If you are interested in partnering with MAP this coming Veteran’s Day, please get in touch with us. We would be happy to discuss personalized and creative ideas with you!
