Veterans charity group gets boost from National Defense Industry Association
The National Defense Industry Association (NDIA) is donating $1,000 to an organization that helps support local veterans.
The joint Iowa and Illinois chapter of the organization raised the money during the NDIA Midwest Government Contracting Symposium that was held in May.
The charity organization, Healing On the Fly, is a group of nonprofits that work together to help Quad Cities veterans. Their assistance efforts include providing service animals, connecting to alternative medical services and providing legal or financial support.
Healing On the Fly plans to use the donation to provide a service animal to a local veteran from “DEFINITLEY DOGS” out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
NDIA will present the organization with a check during a public event at the Quad Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau.
