Navy League Establishes
Washington Navy Yard Survivors Fund
ARLINGTON, Va. — The Navy League of the United States has established the Washington Navy Yard Survivors Fund to provide financial assistance to those families most affected by the tragic events at the Navy Yard on Sept. 16, 2013.
“It is our duty, as a trusted partner of the sea services, to do what we can to ease the burden of those whose lives are forever changed by this tragic event,” Navy League National President James H. Offutt said. “We look forward to working with like-minded nongovernmental organizations, community leaders and others on this endeavor. We are going to do our best to help members of our extended Navy family through this difficult time”
This fund will be closed at a date to be determined, with 100 percent of the donations going to help the victims’ families and those injured in the attack.
