A text-to-give campaign to raise funds for local veterans in need is underway in the Greater Baton Rouge area.
Capital Area United Way and BASF launched the effort, through which people can donate by texting United4Vets to 313131. Those who donate $10 or more will be entered to win two tickets to the LSU-Arkansas football game on Saturday, Nov. 11, which is Veterans Day.
Funds raised during the campaign will help local veterans gain access to resources they need like shelter, mental health support and addiction recovery, a news release said.
“Our goal is to give back to those veterans who have given our community so much,” said George Bell, president and CEO of Capital Area United Way. “We are grateful for their service and invite the community to join BASF and United Way in this important effort to honor them by providing vital assistance and services.”
