Community Council of South Central Texas (CCSCT) is proud to announce their upcoming online auction to raise funds to help local veterans.
This year, the Veterans Financial Assistance Program will transport you to the Great Outdoors, with sports equipment and camping themed items. Bidding runs March 21-March 25, on the charity auction app, “Better World.” Last year, the event raised $4,000 from the auction and $2,000 in private donations. All funds raised will continue to benefit the Veteran’s Financial Assistance Program.
Veterans Financial Assistance Program Coordinator, Kenneth Loy, expressed the importance of the fundraising efforts, “We are raising funds to prevent homelessness amongst vulnerable veterans. Your donation will be used to stabilize housing and ensure access to utilities and transportation by Honorably discharged veterans.”
Auction items were donated from the surrounding communities- ranging from custom fishing rods to a Black Stone Grill. Supporters will place their bids all week, leading up to the last few seconds when the auction closes at 7 p.m. on March 25. CCSCT would like to thank all the sponsors supporting our veterans including; Black Rifle Coffee Company, The Karnes Electric Cooperative, Messina Hof Winery, Henry Rifles, Skeeter Bass Boats, Poteet Strawberry Festival, Snake Farm and Zoo, San Antonio Zoo, Buckhorn Texas Ranger Museum, Atlas 46, Cooper Forge, Medina Electric, Harbor Freight Tools and more.
