MURRIETA—Assemblymember Kelly Seyarto (R-Murrieta) is proud to announce he has selected MilVet as the 2022 California Nonprofit of the Year for the 67th Assembly District. Each year, in honor of California Nonprofits Day (ACR 186), legislators from across the state highlight a nonprofit from their district that has provided exemplary service to their community.
“The volunteers at MilVet are committed to improving the quality of life for Veterans, active duty service members, and their families,” said Seyarto. “Our 67th District is home to one of California’s largest Veteran populations. MilVet’s leadership provides our Armed Forces community with much needed access to a network of valuable resources, and it is my privilege to select this worthy organization for this award.”
Since 2016, MilVet has been serving the communities of Southwest Riverside County by providing various programs and general support services to Veterans, current services members, seniors, and families while also connecting them with local, low-cost and free assistance resources. Their programs include Military Care Packages, the MilVet Strong Fitness Program, MilVet Jr. Youth Program, Veteran Benefit Assistance, and the Holiday for Heroes Toy Drive. They also assist, collaborate with, and donate to other local Veteran nonprofits in the region.
“At MilVet, our goal is to strengthen our communities and empower every citizen to live a better life,” said Raven Hilden, the Founder and CEO of MilVet. “It is an incredible honor to be recognized for the work we do, especially by Assemblymember Seyarto who does so much to support those who serve our country and community.”
This year, California Nonprofits Day is June 8th. The California Association of Nonprofits will be hosting an awards luncheon in Sacramento where Assemblymember Seyarto will formally honor MilVet. A district award celebration is also planned for June 16th.
