What is Operation K.A.V.I.C.
Operation K.A.V.I.C. stands for: Keller Assists Veterans In Crisis. Operation K.A.V.I.C. is a fund that was created by Keller Logistics Group to prevent local veterans from enduring financial crisis. Fundraising for the program is done by asking business partners, local businesses, and community members to sponsor or donate to the annual Veterans Appreciation Dinner held annually in November
Last year we were very excited to announce that we raised over $40,000 to fund the efforts of Operation K.A.V.I.C. in 2017. So far this year, we’ve spent a little over half of the money raised to support active duty, veterans, reservists, and national guard members when they are about to endure a financial crisis.
What does Operation K.A.V.I.C. help pay for?
Operation K.A.V.I.C. offers support where veterans benefits may not. Over the past 7 months, we’ve been able to assist those in need by paying bills in the following categories:
Other categories in which the Operation K.A.V.I.C. fund can help are: helping purchase tools for a new job, tax payments, and bank account overdraft fees.
