CSU's "Valuing Our Viking Vets" Fundraiser
Your Donation will promote the successful transition of student veterans from the classroom and to our community.
With your help we can quickly reach and exceed our goal of $5,000!
Why do we need your support?
Basic Military + Job Training: 12 to 52+ weeks
Military Separation/Retirement Training: 1-2 weeks
Some service-members/veterans not fully prepared to re-start life after service.
As a community, it is our responsibility to help these men and women transition back into our community!
