Giving back to our local Veterans is so important. These men and women gave their lives to help protect us. To say thank you and lend a hand, The Independence Fund and Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina are providing care packages to Veterans and their families. This is a part of the ongoing Independence@Home program.

Independence@Home was launched by The Independence Fund in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This program in Charlotte provides direct support to catastrophically disabled Veterans, caregivers, and families. Independence@Home has become a permanent service of The Independence Fund, providing emergency assistance with housing costs, utilities, childcare, WiFi, groceries, and more. This is how they are giving back to our Charlotte community.
