The Connection and Your Reward
Frank Salato, President & Founder

Frank SalatoWith so many of our fellow Americans in need, I can appreciate how difficult it is for you to choose who to help and not unless your life has been touch in some way making a connection to a cause can be challenging.

Good Morning AmericaUnited Relief Foundation was formed in 2005 to provide a way to make a tangible difference in helping Hurricane Katrina victims. Even though our missions were successful, received praise from the public and much media attention, the Foundation’s generous supporters, along with our fellow Americans, felt a growing sense of duty to serve those who serve to protect our Country.

The Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts connected all Americans to the men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, and now that the wars have ended the United Relief Foundation is determined to keep people connected and engaged in helping our Heroes in need.
