PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE) – The Murrieta / Wildomar Chamber of Commerce has named MilVet as the 2021 Nonprofit Organization for its work in helping military families.
MilVet.Org was founded by Raven Hilden, a 2014 graduate of the University of Phoenix. Hilden, a spouse in the military, founded the nonprofit 501c3 to serve hundreds of veteran families and thousands of soldiers and soldiers around the world. The work of their organization includes a military supply package for deployed troops, support for military families, assistance for veterans with reintegration into society after their return, as well as free rehabilitation and therapy programs for needy veterans.
