What We Are About
The United Relief Foundation is about doing the good deeds that make profound lasting differences in the lives of the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces.
For the most part, with the exception of a Good Morning America appearance and occasional media attention, the United Relief Foundation quietly goes about Making A Difference by Being The Difference.
Welcoming others to have a rewarding part in the Foundation’s humanitarian relief efforts is how we are united in the service to the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces.
Who We Servce
Men and Women who have honorably served in the United States Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy. Title 38 of the Code of Federal Regulations defines a veteran as “a person who served in the active military, naval, or air service and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.”
Our Founder & President
Frank Salato was 27 when his father Frank, a Navy Veteran, passed away at the age of 57 and the loss started his perpetual drive to be as giving as his Dad. In response to the suffering caused by Hurricane Katrina Frank wanted to do more than writing a check. Henceforth, the formation of the United Relief Foundation in 2006 leading to humanitarian aid for Veterans that carries on to this day.
Even though Frank is appreciative of the accolades, from receiving the Lions Outstanding Service Award to a Good Morning America appearance, he gives the credit of the good done and differences made to the generosity of others.
