COVID-19 Update - Keeping our volunteers and the veterans we serve safe has always been our priority, and we continue to adjust activities accordingly.

Responding with Care: Providing the personal hygiene products, clothing, food and other essentials for the basic dignity and wellness of veterans, and their families.

Responding with Comfort: Helping veterans, and their families, feel safe and find them safe shelter or improve their living conditions.

Responding with Compassion: Aiding veterans, and their families, in a moment of need or to prevent a crisis in manner that will help them stay or becoming self-sufficient.


Making literally Life-Saving differences, as with an Army Veteran who was living in a van with his wife and their two children have attested too after the Foundation helped provide safe housing, food and medicine as well as employment prospects for him and his wife, and the gas money to get to appointments, interviews, and their new jobs.


Coming to the aid of a veteran in need or crisis are with the long term results and rewards of them staying or becoming self-reliant.


A family and a community are receiving a benefit for every veteran in need that we provide the hope to bolster their self-esteem and help boost their self-reliance.


Rapid Response Patron

The virtual 5k event by the Naperville Illinois Military Employee Resource Group (MERGE) of St. Paul Minnesota based Ecolab generated the idea of Rapid Response Patron to identify businesses that engage their employees in a collective charitable effort, and serves as a Good Deed model for other corporations and organizations.

The Naperville's MERGE 2020 virtual 5K event was dedicated to Michael Kosak, who died before the event.

Michael was a veteran and a dear MERGE leadership member who championed the 5K event.

Honoring Michael's service, the United Relief Foundation shall continue to offer In the Memory of Michael Kosak donations, until March 1, 2021, that will be placed in the Naperville MERGE Rapid Response funding well.
