Ohio AVMETS Ladies Auxillary Donates $1,758 To The Callen Foundation

President Kay Gibbons & The Ladies Auxillaries Throughout The State Of Ohio Worked Very Hard This Year To Raise Funds To Support Ohio Military Familes With Emergency Financial Needs.  The Callen Foundtion Graciously Thanks All Of Them For Thier Support.  Without The Groups LIke The Ohio AMVETS Ladies Auxillary We Could Not Accomplish All That We Do To Support Our Troops.  A Big Thank You From The Callen Foundation Board !




Thank you for visiting our Foundation's website. We hope that you will help us provide those military families seeking emergency assistance with the  funds they require.  Any contribution, regardless of size, will make a great difference for those facing great financial struggles.

Many of our recipients are families with a military spouse, who has suffered career or near career ending injuries.  Others are those with the main bread winner serving in a combat zone who have no other family or friends to rely on.  Many only need a small amount of funds to get by an immediate emergency like a car or home repairs.

It is our true hope that you, after reading the stories of those needing assistance, will feel compelled, as we do, to offer a hand of hope to those families that are truly making the greatest sacrifice for our county and our freedoms.



Chris D. Callen
President & Founder

Major General Bartman - Adjutant General Of The Entire Ohio National Guard, With Major General Harris, Commander Of The Army Ohio National Guard presented Lynn and I, on behalf of The Callen Foundation, their annual Adjutant General award at the Embassy Suites in Dublin. Lynn and I would like to thank all of you that have made donations or have helped support the Foundation in the past. Without your support, we could not be helping as many military families that we do. Please remember us for as a recipient for your next organization's charity fundraising event.



Quite an honor. Who would ever thought a US Army Specialist 4 would be on the same platform with three generals (including two, two star Major Generals).  This award also belongs to our Board without them we would not have gotten this far.
