My Dear Friends:

The journey of running a non-profit organization is full of bumps and obstacles. However, because of your continuous support, we are able to overcome those challenges and move forward to plan for future Monterey County Veterans Day Parades. 

Each parade is a new milestone for our organization. As the annual parade is expanding, we need more resources to support our effort. We are currently looking for donations to sponsor our annual parade. Any amount of donation is welcome. If you can only afford $5, we are grateful for whatever you can help. If you can make it $5,000, we thank you for your generosity. Every dollar you donate will go towards to support the operation of the parade and not a penny will be paid to our committee members or volunteers.

If you can donate online, please select the Donate button on this page. If you prefer to write us a check, please make it payable to: Salinas Veterans Day Parade.

Note that your donation is tax deductible. Our federal tax I.D. number is: 94-0280884.

This year’s parade is dedicated to the 7th Infantry Division, originally based on Fort Ord.  We want to honor and recognize their sacrifice and services. We sincerely hope that with your donation and support, we together can create an unforgettable memory for our Service Members, Veterans, and their loved ones on 11-11-2019.

Sincerely yours,
Tony Virrueta, Committee Chairman
