Cash Prize to Benefit Two Local Veteran Organizations
The $27,456.40 award will be shared by two local veteran organizations: the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW)/Spriggs-Wing Post 5451 and Disabled American Veterans (DAV)/Chapter 31, both headquartered in Urbana.
“Our service to veterans is a team effort,” says Ron Orr, who works out of the OMJCC office as disabled veterans outreach specialist for the ODJFS Office of Workforce Development. Orr, who served 23 years in the Ohio Air National Guard and U.S. Air Force, nominated OMJCC for the award and designated the VFW and DAV to receive the cash prize. He helps veterans in Champaign, Logan and Union counties.
