Charity news from around the F.O.E.

Virginia - August 2022

During the 2022 Virginia State Convention held in Fredericksburg, Virginia, June 23-25, the Virginia State Eagles were able to present a check to “Homes For Our Troops” for $136,721. These funds will go directly to aid in a build for Kevork “Khach” Khachadurian, who lost both of his legs when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED) in Afghanistan in 2011. This donation was the byproduct of a year’s worth of fundraising towards the 2021-2022 Virginia State Worthy President’s Charity Project. 

The raising of funds began in Phoenix at the 2021 Grand Convention where SWP Rock Ruark and other volunteers sold his SWP Magnet to kickstart the effort. “The entire Virginia State Eagle Family got behind this effort and, in the end, raised far more money than I ever imagined; for which I am eternally grateful and proud of their accomplishment,” said SWP Rock Ruark. “This has been a marquee year for our State; with three new Aerie/Auxiliary Homes; 9.9% Net Gain in membership; and now this huge gift” he added. 

Rock himself is a 30-year veteran of the U.S. Army and stated “there was never a doubt as to the type of charity he would select when he reached the seat of State Worthy President; however, when research was completed, it was “Homes For Our Troops” that won out over various non-profits assisting America’s Heroes today”.
