Who We Support
Salute Snacks vets every veteran charity they support, so you know your donation is going only to reputable organizations. While Salute Snacks has just started, our first donation checks are planned to go to these veteran charities:
The Easter Seals Dixon Center
The Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Community Services is a national clearinghouse launched in 2012. The Center is a catalyst for the consolidation of the disparate efforts underway since 9/11 that provide services to veterans, military service members, and their families. We use a holistic approach that focuses on three areas: education, employment and access to healthcare. We endorse and disseminate practical, community-based solutions that maximize private and public dollars. Services include disseminating relevant information; convening meetings of corporate, philanthropic, nonprofit and military and veteran leaders; and advising funders on investments that facilitate real and lasting success in civilian, family and community life. Dixon Center provides leadership to a nationwide network of support – consisting of tens of thousands of organizations – for the delivery of services, or to services. Its team is led by Executive Director David W. Sutherland, Colonel US-Army, Retired. Easter Seals is Dixon Center’s 501(c) 3 sponsor and is also one of its myriad partners that provide support and direct services to veterans and military families. Easter Seals is supporting Dixon Center to emerge and deliver on its bold mission. Dixon Center’s work will not be done until veterans and our military families can thrive; where they live.
