We are honored and extend our deepest appreciation to VetsAid The Concert for awarding a generous $5,000 grant to VFW Post 399 in recognition for Community Support and Food Assistance.  Today VetsAid announced the disbursement of $250,000 in grants to various community, mid-sized and national veterans organizations with monies raised from their 4th annual concert event which streamed online on December 12, 2020. 
To date, VetsAid has disbursed nearly $1.8 million dollars to organizations that support veterans and their families. All net proceeds from the 2020 festival will go directly to the charities that have been selected through a vetting process coordinated in tandem with the Combined Arms Institute.”
