Books for Veterans!
The Veteran Services Office at Western Washington University is currently the hub for the veteran community. Although the community is small compared to other universities in Washington, it is growing every day. We are often our veterans first point of contact, their preferred hangout and a place to land when they are struggling. If there is an issue or financial hardship they will come to us first to talk about what resources the school and the community have to offer. Transitioning from active duty to college can be difficult and burdensome, some students are unable to pay for necessities such as books, transportation or added housing costs. We need your help to support our veteran community as much as we can.
We see some of our veteran community students faced with financial hardships and would like to have a reserve fund to support these students. We want them to remain focused on coursework despite any unforeseen financial emergencies. Spread the word about our campaign, Books for Veterans. If you want to support our mission and the Veteran Community students pursuing their education at Western, please donate!
