PWC's Ramp It Up For Veterans Campaign

PWC is kicking-off the agency’s 6th annual campaign on November 11th, Veteran's Day, to assist low-income and/or disabled veterans throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. In the previous four years, PWC has provided services for over 3,000 households of veterans or their surviving spouse.

PWC is committed to this program because the need continues to escalate with the aging demographics of the veterans throughout our local communities as evidenced below: 

TriState Veterans Snapshot

Currently, veterans in the TriState region represent 145,870 veterans (8.8%) out of a population of 1,652,598.

The fastest growing group of veterans are those 65 years and older, with a population of 62,300 or 43% of all veterans in our community.

8,898 of those veterans 65 years and older or 14% are currently living below the poverty level.

Upcoming Veteran Events with People Working Cooperatively

PWC’s 31st Annual Prepare Affair on Saturday, November 11th (Veterans Day)

 On Veterans Day People Working Cooperatively will host its 31st annual Prepare Affair event, where volunteers will rake leaves and clean gutters for low-income seniors and homeowners with disabilities to prepare their homes for winter. 

This year’s Prepare Affair is special because PWC will be kicking off its annual Ramp it Up for Veterans campaign the same day. PWC aims to serve over 250 Veteran homeowners and spouses of Veterans through the event. PWC staff and volunteers will work side-by-side with local veteran groups to give back to those veterans in the Tri-State most in need of PWC’s services.
