What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

At the beginning of every year, we sit down and address our problems with the organization. For the year 2018, we address a decline in attendance to our events. As an origination we agreed that we would be out talking to other organizations, be putting up more booths and campaigning event better on social media. We would also talk to local television news stations to help advertise us for free. Through out the year, we will write down other issues and address them. At the end of year we will reanalyze everything and make adjustments for the next year.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our main accomplishment is to continue to honor our Veterans. We want to welcome home more Military Heroes, send more care packages, get more members to come to our events and build up our relationships with other local Military non-profit organizations.

-build up membership
-promote the organization
-put up more booths at festivals

We need to form a committee to help out the organization. This will allow us to be better at everything and bring more members, more welcome homes, and more care packages.

-Committee is formed for annual fundraiser
-Social Media campaign is up and running. Up over 1000 followers on both platforms
-Social Media fundraising totals are higher than last year already
