Frets 4 Vets needs $10k before January
SALISBURY, Md. – One organization is on a mission to help veterans suffering with PTSD, but they need your help to push their plans forward.
Frets for Vets is a volunteer based group that uses music to help veterans through PTSD and depression.
Right now, there are over 500 people waiting to be accepted into the program, but that, of course, costs money.
So the group is hoping to raise $10,000 by New Years Eve so that they can accept more veterans into their next session, which begins in January.
It’s a cause that organizers with the group say is something that everyone should care about.
“Twenty-two military veterans or active duty people commit suicide daily due to PTSD and depression, and that number should be zero, we should take care of the people who fight for our freedoms,” Founder Tom Baker said.
Baker tells 47 ABC that about 90% of the money raised goes toward creating custom made guitars that the veterans receive once they finish the program.
