Ramp It Up For Veterans

PWC is kicking-off the agency’s 8th annual campaign on November 11th, Veterans Day, to assist low-income and/or disabled veterans throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. In the previous seven 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:
