ABOUT USA CARES MICHIGAN CHAPTER

USA Cares Michigan Chapter was founded in 2011 to help post 911 Vets and their families. We help bear the burdens of service by providing post-9/11 military families with financial and advocacy support in their time of need. We do this by organizing and hosting charity events such as the 2015 Charity Ride & Classic Car Show.
