AMVETS pickup services helping veterans

For over 50 years AMVETS has been working behind the scenes to help veterans get the benefits they have earned and so deserve.

Our National Service Officers have the benefit of communicating with AMVETS offices around the country, to better understand the needs of our Veterans and how to maximize the impact of your contributions. Your donation can help enable us to procure and arrange for the technology and resources that are desperately needed to better serve our veterans. Fighting for freedom is not easy, but with your help we can make it a little easier, one veteran at a time.
