Veterans in Need was founded in 2016 to provide emergency assistance to veterans who suffer sudden loss of income or emergency. Funds are provided for everyday essentials that are beyond the individual’s ability to meet. The organization also operates a furniture warehouse which provides household goods to veterans. Any veteran honorably discharged and with a valid DD214 or other documentation may apply for assistance. Visit www.bcvin.org for more information.

Mars Bank supports Veterans in Need as part of its Step Forward Campaign which promotes and supports first responders, active military and veterans. Mars Bank is one true community bank focused on combining the products and technology that its customers need while maintaining its focus on long-term customer relationships.
