PWC's Ramp It Up For Veterans Campaign
PWC is kicking-off the agency’s 5th annual campaign on 9/11, Patriot 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:
