2021 Holiday Wish List Drive

Many individuals have supported JetCo Solutions' Veterans Wish List Drives throughout the years. Through these, we’ve contributed tons of new items to Michigan veterans during the holiday season. In 2020, we had to modify because of COVID – instead of sending wish list items, we sent donations that supported holiday events and other programming. Since this entailed collecting money from generous folks, we formed a non-profit organization to keep things legit - For the Vets.

We're excited to announce we're bringing back our Holiday Wish List Drive this year through For the Vets!

For the Vets' 2021 holiday initiative runs Thursday, November 11 through Thursday, December 9. During this time, we will collect donations, both physical and monetary, to benefit the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans and the D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans in Marquette. 100% of all donations will directly benefit the initiative. For the Vets is supported by volunteers, and we have no overhead costs.
