The transition from active duty to civilian life is not always easy. There are many services in place to support #veterans. But, often, the problem is a lack of coordination between those services. Furthermore, red tape often prevents veterans and their families from getting the help they need. #MISSIONUNITED helps cut through that red tape. Learn more via link in @unitedway bio.

It’s still a long road to recovery for places impacted by hurricanes. Thank you to JJ Yeley who raced for hurricane victims in car #14 at @txmotorspeedway last weekend. But you don’t have to be a #NASCAR driver to help fuel short-, mid-, and long-term relief for communities impacted by #Harvey.

Donate to the United Harvey Recovery Fund by texting HARVEY to 50503. Or, give through our website. Link in @unitedway bio. 100% goes to communities impacted by the storm.
