Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020
Pamela Walters, current President of the Tyler Rotary Club and owner of The Pamela Walters Group issued a one-to-one challenge grant for CAMPV to the Rotary Club of Tyler, Texas.
If the Club could raise $2,500, a match of $2,500 from The Pamela Walters Group would be given making a total minimum gift of $5,000 to CAMPV.
This exciting challenge grant was targeted to coincide with East Texas Giving Day as a part of the International Giving Day emphasis where Rotarians from around the world are encouraged to give to philanthropic causes that positively impact their communities. On Tuesday, December 1st, 2020 Pamela Walters and members of The Pamela Walters Group along with representatives of The Rotary Club of Tyler and members of the CAMPV leadership team, met to share in this gift exchange. The Rotary Club of Tyler surpassed Pamela Walters' challenge grant making the total gift of $6,700!
“I am so proud of my Club’s efforts to surpass our challenge of $2,500 because CAMPV’S mission is dear to my heart and I am so pleased that we were able to give these funs in support of the Veterans of East Texas,” Pamela said. Michael Chicowicz, Director of CAMPV states “these funds will go directly in support of several program directives that are currently underway and are in need of additional funding.” He also indicated that plans are being developed for a comprehensive capital campaign to be launched in the extremely near future.
CAMPV is a one-of-a-kind Veteran benefits assistance facility sponsored by Community Assisting Military Personnel and Veterans whose mission is “to help build a stronger community of support that eases military families when transitioning back into civilian life, or in times of crisis, and/or with life planning issues.”
Susan Campbell, CAMPV’s Board Chair, shared an open invitation to the public to come by the CAMPV campus for a tour to see all the exciting programs and plans that are and will be available for the Veterans of East Texas.
