Veteran singer and guitarist Joe Walsh has announced that his charity group VetsAid has disbursed $795,000 in grants to veterans services organizations.
The money was raised by Walsh’s second annual VetsAid benefit concert, which took place on Veterans Day 2018 at the Tacoma Dome.
This is more than twice the amount given away last year; VetsAid disbursed $360,000 in grants after its inaugural concert in Fairfax, Virginia.
VetsAid divided the proceeds from the 2018 concert event into large and small grants. All recipients were chosen by Walsh and the board of VetsAid.
This year’s recipients of the grants, worth $75,000 each, are: Operation Mend, Hire Heroes USA, Warrior Canine Connection, Tragedy Assistance Programs for Survivors (TAPS), Semper Fi Fund, Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, Stop Soldier Suicide, Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans and Sentinels of Freedom.
