Thanks to generous community support, Easterseals Our Serve raised more than $180,000 for local veterans in need.

The Easterseals tent at the Western & Southern Open was filled August 12 with active duty service members, veterans, and so many supporters who are passionate about recognizing the sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform.

Noah Galloway, who fought his way back to fitness after losing two limbs to an explosion in Iraq, shared inspiring words about how to live without excuses. We also honored Vietnam War veteran Ohio Senator Lou Terhar, who encouraged us to remember that “veterans aren’t damaged, they are just different.”

Noah and Sen. Terhar later had the honor of participating in the coin toss in the evening match between Maria Sharapova and Alison Riske.

We are especially grateful that Our Serve raised more than $180,000 so that we can meet our mission of serving Greater Cincinnati veterans in need. As Sen. Terhar mentioned, Easterseals is one of the few organizations to serve any veteran, regardless of their discharge status.

Easterseals Military and Veteran Services wants to reach local veterans and provide hope and opportunity long before crisis sets in. We expect to receive about 1,000 requests for help this year. Your support helps ensure we have the resources needed to provide the emergency relief and employment support that local veterans have earned through their service.

If you were not able to attend Our Serve but would like to make a gift – there is still time for you to make an impact in the life of a local veteran.
