COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Vet Bod Car + Bike Wash is a charity fundraiser for a veteran nonprofit organization, 22 Until None. The event last year raised over $6,000.
The event volunteers will be washing vehicles and motor bikes for donations to benefit 22 Until None. 22 Until None is a registered 501(c)(3) organization that aids veterans and active duty members with financial assistance and crisis intervention both locally in Colorado Springs and across the United States.
Officials with 22 Until None say, "With this epidemic running through our ranks of veterans, we need to take a stand as a team. We host many events and attend many others to help our veterans in every way possible. We are currently offering emergency financial assistance, help with VA benefits, help transitioning, advocacy, wellness services, and camaraderie. We need your help to make this happen. We ask you to take a stand and help us bring this number to zero!"
Disgruntled Vets is a group of veterans and active duty members that are passionate about the veteran community. We assist veterans in crisis through our network, and aide in combatting veteran homelessness, suicide, and issues within the Department of Veteran Affairs.
The event goes from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Apex Sports, 327 S Weber St, Colorado Springs.
