The DAV National Service Office in Portland has obtained drafts (checks) to be sent out to veterans/surviving spouses that have been impacted by the wildfires in Oregon. The drafts are up to $1,000 per household, regardless if it’s a multiple veteran household.
To receive a draft PLEASE have the participant follow these steps:
[email protected] and state “WILDFIRE RELIEF” in the subject line.
2.We need the full name of the veteran/surviving spouse.
3.Their address that has been affected.
4.An address they can receive the draft at.
5.Their phone number and/or email address.
6.Proof of veteran status. Various things will work for this, the veteran DOES NOT need to be in receipt of any VA benefits. Examples: DDF 214, VA rating sheet, driver’s license with “veteran” annotation, etc.
7.Are they requesting for food and clothing only OR did they have to evacuate/pay for lodging? Please include as much proof/verification to make this as easy as possible.
